In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 7600 GS Asus Silent Edition are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce 4 MX 440.

The 7600 GS was released over three years more recently than the 4 MX, and so the 7600 GS 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 7600 GS has 128 MB more video memory than the 4 MX, so is likely to be slightly better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the 7600 GS also has superior memory performance overall.

The 7600 GS has 22.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the 4 MX, which means that the memory performance of the 7600 GS is slightly better than the 4 MX.

The GeForce 7600 GS Asus Silent Edition has 12 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 4 MX 440 has 2. However, the actual shader performance of the 7600 GS is 5 and the actual shader performance of the 4 MX is 1. The 7600 GS having 4 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the 7600 GS delivers a slightly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the 4 MX.

The GeForce 7600 GS Asus Silent Edition requires 27 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GeForce 4 MX 440. We would recommend a PSU with at least 350 Watts for the 7600 GS.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGeForce 7600 GS Asus Silent Edition is a special edition of the GeForce 7600 GS. See the page of the standard edition for more information about it.
The biggest feature is the reduced noise that went from average to almost none and according to Asus the "Splendid video enhancement technology detects the activation and usage of video applications and automatically optimizes image quality for the best visual results". No gaming optimizations were included and so the performance, when gaming, is exactly like the standard edition.
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....
