    Geforce 2 MX/MX 400
    RAMDAC Integrated
    32MB Memory
    Version 2.11.00.18.00

    Perfect working order. Boxed with screws n everything that comes with it including driver & utility disk. Been in use roughly 1 year.

    how much would it be worth selling in £?
    i got a new graphics card and i dont need this old 1 anymore so i just need to know what the reasonable selling price is.

    make sure you have a brown AGP slot, otherwise it should work fine.

    GF4 MX440SE 64MB DDR AGP RP VO

    GeForce 4 MX440SE 64MB AGP VO

    so what is the actual difference between these, which one should i get? price doesnt bother me too much because its roughly half of what i was about to pay

    the £26 one is DDR memory, the £25 is SDR single data memory
    so the 26 quid version will be better,

    i have just checked my graphics card and...

    on the sticker it says:

    geforce mx-400/32mb+TV

    does that mean i can watch tv?

    if so i did not know that

    and yes the card is in a brown slot

    so would the ddr version work

    If you have an AGP slot, it should work just fine.

    yes it will work, and so long as it has the round socket for the TV cable then yes it will,

    If it's white, it's probably PCI. Unless you're talking about the card. If it looks too short to reach the AGP slot, it's a PCI card.

    the slot in the computer is brown.

    but on the card theres a sticker that mentions something about TV
    and on the back of the card there is a slot i have not noticed before.

    its a little similar to a mouse port although a mouse does not fit what kind of port will it be?

    It's an S-Video cable. If your TV doesn't have one, then you must get an s-video to RCA adapter.

    The +TV probably means TV out. I never heard of an Nvidia card with a built in TV tuner which is what you need to watch TV.

    The +TV usually just means that with the right cable you can plug the Video card output into a TV instead of a monitor.

    Check the manufacturers web site for the exact model number of your card and it will tell you all the features.
