Summary: I purchased this card after my 5 year old ati 5670 died. In the same class as my old card, it is a newer version that gives a small performance increase from the older one. It runs very cool compared to my old card (which ran at 49 C resting). This card rests at 30 C.
Summary: I have always loved ASUS, and have many different products by them, and have been pleased with every one of them. This card is no exception. The driver installation was flawless and same with the software that came with it.
Summary: I am not a gamer but needed a relatively inexpensive card that would allow me to add a third monitor for business use. Works like a charm. Very fast and quiet. One warning, you will need at least one of your monitors to have a display port connection to make a 3 monitor system work with this video...
Summary: After looking for what felt like months to find a decent, budget card that would work in my Dell Studio XPS tower that I bought off a friend this summer (with a 350w power supply), I fell upon this and the ASUS GT 440 as my final decision.
A really good card for the money - not heart stopping but really good

Summary: I recently bought and have installed this card. It replaced at 6450 (horrible card) with 1gb ddr3. Let me say that this card is miles better than the 6450. The ATI catalyst even upgraded without a hitch (I had to do a system reload when the 6450 tried this).
good card , make sure you have lots of ventilation

Summary: good card , maybe great for the price. runs warcraft at 50ish frames per second no matter what the setting. although ultra has some turning issues. if however you do not have really good cooling and/or ventilation it does heat up.
Summary: I purchased this card several months ago to upgrade from the same class but in the 5xxx series, so the 5670. That was a great little card. And so is this. This is certainly no powerhouse though. It will NOT run the newest games on maximum settings at an enjoyable frame rate. It just won't.
Summary: Have a BE-2300 (~x2 3800) and with this card am able to run Dragon Age 2 at 1080p on HIGH settings (not very high). Temps are about 55deg when playing. All this using < 100 watts for my system (using kill-a-watt).
