if your looking for a GeForce 4 mx440 I would go for this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814140021

but otherwise they're roughly the same.

They don't change much, it's kind of like the AMD 3000+ without o.c. and a P4 3.0HT, but the ATI one is a little better for gaming because it supports direct x 8.1 where as the geforce 4 only supports up to 7.1. So it's not going to be much different.

Also I don't get what you mean by under 100 dollars, that card says it's 12 bucks. If you want a better card under 100 bucks I can suggest one, but I'm not sure if that's what you're asking.

I don't know if there's a difference between those, but for a decent card under $100 I would recommend http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814102320

9200 SE is the 'slow edition' of this card...
A plain 9200 is faster...
