I have both of these graphics cards and I want to know which is better so I can use that one. I know that nvidia doesn't make drivers for the gt 440 anymore so I'm not sure which one to pick.

In some cases yes, newer drivers will have performance improvements over older drivers. If there aren't any official drivers though, and you can only use the basic VGA windows 10 drivers, then the card just won't be able to perform to expectations (or sometimes even be able to run any 3D applications). Don't know how I got sidetracked and didn't look close enough before though, because it looks like these are the latest drivers for the GT 440, which are for Windows 10:

They're close enough in performance, although it looks like the 630 is slightly better. Since it also appears to have better driver support, I'd go with that. Only you can plug them both in and actually see how the performance compares though.

By the way I have these ones.
The GT 440: https://videocardz.net/point-of-view-geforce-gt-440-2gb/
The GT 630: https://videocardz.net/point-of-view-geforce-gt-630-2gb-3/

As I see the specs on these pages, it seems that the only downside of the GT 440 is the outdated drivers.

Then use the 440. Try installing them both, and run some benchmarks to see which one performs better. Future driver support is pretty irrelevant for both cards, since they're so old, that's expected.
