In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel HD i5 2500K are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce 4 MX 440.

The HD i5 2500K was released over three years more recently than the 4 MX, and so the HD i5 2500K is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the 4 MX when running the latest games.

Both GPUs exhibit very poor performance, so rather than upgrading from one to the other you should consider looking at more powerful GPUs. Neither of these will be able to run the latest games in any playable way.

The 4 MX has 128 MB video memory, but the HD i5 2500K does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The 4 MX has 2 Shader Processing Units but the HD i5 2500K does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The HD i5 2500K requires 95 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GeForce 4 MX 440.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewHD i5 2500K is specific version of Intel HD 3000 graphics that is built into the 'Intel Core i5 2500K' processor. You can only play most of the latest games like Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, Saints Row The Third, Battlefield 3, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim on the lowest settings, but you might experience a small lag. Less demanding games will run from medium to high settings.GeForce4 MX 440 is part of the GeForce4 GPUS released by NVIDIA in 2002. Only compatible with DirectX 7 or less and with a max memory of 128 MB, it can't play today's games. Still, games before 2003 should be fully playable at max settings....
