Should I buy ZOTAC nVidia GeForce GT440 2 GB right now?

Hello. I'm about to buy ZOTAC nVidia GeForce GT440 2 GB. Is this any good?

Now don't tell me it's slow and stuff and it's just for basic usage. Because that's just plain not right. I've seen gameplay videos with this card going pretty well...


I'm no HD gamer or something. I wanna play games on 1024x768 or 1280x1024 resolution on medium settings. Don't want more.

I have no budget to buy something better and just advise me what can I do...


It's perfect for games like Mafia 2, Dead Rising 2, Max Payne 3 on medium settings so that's what I want.


Please don't exaggerate how this card is horrific, like many guys do it. Just underline the fact.

Thank you very much guys!

    Mmk, grab it if you want it, just look at benchmarks first, Youtube videos are worth less than a piece of paper on the ground saying " this is the best video card in the world" and should be treated as such unless you know the uploader IRL.

    70fps @ 800 x 600 on all low settings in Mafia 2: http://www.tomshardware.com/charts/2011-entry-level-graphics/Mafia-2-lowest,2875.html

    Yeah, this is the original link..


    Oh well... that's a lot of fps considering the fact i've never even tasted that much of a fps...


    30 is already an achievement for me..

    it's a pretty decent card I guess


    Thank u for the reply.
  3. What is your budget? There are better cards with same price as GT 440 2 GB.

    Yes without actually telling us your budget or how much you want to spend then we wont give you with a good decision now can we?
  5. Right now I have $65. I was gonna buy an used card from someone. So that's why this amount is enough to buy the card right now.

    I just want to enjoy recent games at 1024x768 like I said. I don't even want a fantastic performance so to speak... Not used to it anyway :P


    What would be a better choice in your opinion?
  6. Why don't you get HD 6670 DDR3? It's a better buy than GT 440 DDR3. In fact, it's comparable to GT 440 DDR5:

  8. get this hd 5670 which is brand new
    gt 44o is little over this but considerring detirioration of card after use i think youll be better off with http://www.amazon.com/XFX-Radeon-PCI-Express-Video-HD567XZNL3/dp/B004U65Y2Y/ref=sr_1_19?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1340623908&sr=1-19&keywords=hd+6670+gddr5this one-
