Advice/suggest a graphic card for my motherboard?

Operating System:
Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit SP1
-
CPU:
Intel Pentium G630 @ 2.70GHz
Sandy Bridge 32nm Technology
-
RAM:
2.00GB Single-Channel DDR3 @ 532MHz (7-7-7-20)
-
Motherboard
ASRock H61M-VS. R2.0
Slots: 1 x PCIe 3.0 x16
1 x PCIe 2.0 x1

The store where I've bought this computer suggested Galaxy GeForce GTX 680 2GB for 70 USD. Do you think that this graphic card (Galaxy GeForce GTX 680 2GB) is good for games like Assassin's Creed IV, DOTA 2, LOL, GTA IV, Watch Dogs? And also please suggest about how much RAM do I need along with the graphic card you suggested. :)

My PC is really old.

    How much are you willing to spend?

    100-200 USD.

    And get 8gb of ram (2x4gb) , that's all you will need for gaming

    8GB of RAM and Galaxy GeForce GTX 680 2GB ?
  3. There us something wrong with a $70 GTX 680 2GB --- you'll need a good power supply for that, too.

    Well the 680 is still a very good card and 70 dollars for it is crazy. I think they usually sell for at least 300.

    Yeah, I will call them later to double check if it was really 70 USD. Btw, I heard that Win 7 32-bit only let you use 4GB of RAM or something, do you think I need to switch to Win 7 Ultimate 64-bit or Windows 8.1 64-bit?

    Any O.S. that is 32-bit will only let you use a maximum of 4GB of RAM. If you want more RAM, which you will for gaming, you'll want to get the 64-bit version of your choice of O.S. I'd personally suggest Windows 8.1 as that's what I have and while it takes a little getting used to it's not to bad.
