In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce FX 5900XT are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce 4 MX 440.

The GeForce FX 5900XT was released over a year more recently than the 4 MX, and so the GeForce FX 5900XT is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the 4 MX.

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 GeForce 4 MX 440 and the GeForce FX 5900XT have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The GeForce FX 5900XT has 8 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the 4 MX, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce FX 5900XT is marginally better than the 4 MX.

The GeForce 4 MX 440 has 2 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce FX 5900XT has 4. However, the actual shader performance of the 4 MX is 1 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce FX 5900XT is 2. The GeForce FX 5900XT having 1 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GeForce FX 5900XT delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the 4 MX.

The GeForce FX 5900XT requires 35 Watts to run but there is no entry for the 4 MX.
