In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GT 440 v2 Inno3D 2GB Edition are marginally better than the Nvidia GeForce GT 430 MSI Low Profile Dual Fan OC 1GB Edition.

The GT 440 has a 25 MHz higher core clock speed and the same number of Texture Mapping Units as the GT 430. This results in the GT 440 providing 0.4 GTexel/s better texturing performance. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GT 440 has a 25 MHz higher core clock speed than the GT 430 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GT 440 providing 0.1 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GT 440 was released less than a year after the GT 430, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The GeForce GT 430 MSI Low Profile Dual Fan OC 1GB Edition and the GeForce GT 440 v2 Inno3D 2GB Edition have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The GT 430 has 10.7 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GT 440, which means that the memory performance of the GT 430 is slightly better than the GT 440.

Both the GeForce GT 430 MSI Low Profile Dual Fan OC 1GB Edition and the GeForce GT 440 v2 Inno3D 2GB Edition have 96 Shader Processing Units. While the two GPUs have the same number of SPUs, the actual performance delivered by the GT 440 is 156 and by the GT 430 is 156. Knowing that the shader performance of the GT 440 is superior, it is not necessary to examine the GPUs' respective Texture and Pixel Fill Rates.

The GeForce GT 430 MSI Low Profile Dual Fan OC 1GB Edition requires 49 Watts to run and the GeForce GT 440 v2 Inno3D 2GB Edition requires 65 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GT 430 and a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GT 440. The GT 440 requires 16 Watts more than the GT 430 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GT 440 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GT 430.
