Prolink GeForce4 MX440 Video Card Review

Software Bundle



Included with this package will be three disks. Prolink doesn't make it a habit of providing a bunch of worthless demos because a majority of those looking for a card like this already have the games that they're wanting to play. The demo disks that are supposed to show off all the bells and whistles end up being used as a coaster more times than not. Let's see what we have…



What retail package would be complete without a driver disk? This one includes the nVidia Detonator v27.20 drivers, DirectX, and an online manual for the card.


One thing that I have always enjoyed about the Prolink drivers is the fact that they include an overclocking feature that is accessed right through the Display Properties screens. While it isn't difficult to add in a small registry hack to handle this function, it becomes unnecessary since it is already there for us. Also, for those who don't have any knowledge of overclocking the video card, they even provide step-by-step instructions in the manual! Talk about a company that has the Power User in mind.



Every video board that I have received from Prolink so far always has a quality software DVD player. The GeForce4 MX440 is no exception to this rule. Included is a copy of WinDVD, which is consistently being rated within the top two software players. It is also the newer version that is compatible with Windows XP.



Just when I said that Prolink doesn't include games, they changed their ways. Included with this card is the OEM version of Serious Sam: The First Encounter. While I tried it out, I probably won't do much with it. Like I stated earlier, most of us have the games that we need, so this one won't get a lot of use here.
