That PSU should be okay with the GT630, but I would think about upgrading to a better (more reliable, higher quality) PSU in the future.

If you look around the forums, the most recommended brands will typically be Seasonic, Corsair, and XFX (there are other quality brands as well).

There are quality options in most price ranges. For you, what would you budget for such a purchase?

I've just read on some forums that the video card i've wanted (MSI nVidia GeForce GT630, 4096MB, GDDR3, 128bit) is not as good as i thought, can you also help me choose a decent video card in the range of 120-150 $ that will also work with my pc (i dont want the games and programs to work at the highest settings i just want them to work with decent fps), as for the psu i dont really know how much it should be worth but since the current one was like 25 $ i have to say about 50-75$ range. Thank you.

It is definitely an entry level GPU (the GT630). I would recommend you start a new thread requesting recommendations for a new GPU and PSU with your total budget and a description of your system and how you intend to use it.
