Minecraft should run, GTA will run but depending on the resolution at lowered settings. The GT630 is very weak as a gaming card.
November 25, 2012 5:16:15 PM

Thx, can you tell me how much fps I should get in Minecraft at best and worst settings?

Looking at a couple of bench marks @ 1920x1200 on high it runs @ 40-50fps.

Please note that minecraft is will change with the worlds you enter. Some will be very easy while others with lots of blocks will have a huge performance hit on almost any system. Its the nature of that game.

I too would thing that a video card upgrade is in order.

GTA SA should not be THAT hard of a game to play(i am almost sure I have run it on far worse.).
November 25, 2012 7:54:36 PM

It will play both, easily.
GTA SA Is not a hard game to run, just be careful with modded cars (Re-skins), and such, those are tuned to a higher detail on the graphics on those vehicles.
other than that, your fine.

I wouldn't buy it. You should save a little more up like 300 $ and you'll get a decent/good gaming rig. :) 
November 26, 2012 10:36:36 AM

+1 to Kiowa789. The GT630 is a rebadged GT440, which although budget-end should be more than capable of handling San Andreas. You're looking at something roughly equivalent to one of the original 8800GTS models - old hardware but it's an old game. The processor is modern and an excellent performer. I'd advise against restricting yourself to just two games though, why not get something that can play any game? Or at least a few :-)

No way. You can get a much better gaming rig for that price. Tell us where you're from and give us a link to your local shop and we'll find a much better deal :) .

The page is portuguese but here it is.
November 26, 2012 7:07:04 PM

You didn't post anything in the first link. As for the second shop, it's really poor shop it seems. Everything looks overpriced and they have a whooping FOUR motherboards in total for sale!

You must have some computer hardware store in your country. I know Amazon is available in Spain, though not so sure about Portugal.

There, sry for the not working one.

GTA SA is easy easy to run, my old laptop 1.8ghz dual core gpu was radeon x1200 ran it perfect on a low resolution, but i think the 630 will do it

Thanks!

^this rig is -alot- better than the one you posted, even more so when it seems like your plan for the computer is more or less only Gaming. If you have problems building it yourself there is some very good guides on the forum that should be able to make it easier.
November 27, 2012 7:43:21 AM

The problem is building or changing the Hardware, my parents wouldn' allow me.
November 27, 2012 10:45:29 AM

Talk to them about that. You never know something until you actually try to find it out. Explain the situation and I'm fairly confident that at least your dad would want to save a lot of money by building and might even genuinely be interested in building a computer.

I did ask, but he just says no.
November 27, 2012 8:50:39 PM

Thx for your votes, you guys are Awesome!
November 27, 2012 8:52:44 PM

Pleasure :-) Have fun with San Andreas! Grove Street 4 Life Yo.
November 27, 2012 9:47:40 PM

Even my old laptop with a 1.8GHz Athlon II and ATI Radeon Mobility 3100 could run Minecraft and San Andreas. You should be fine.
November 27, 2012 11:37:52 PM

Nice to know :p 
November 28, 2012 3:14:30 AM

That's strange, I see no reason why your parents wouldn't allow it. You probably weren't trying very hard to convince them :p .

Anyway, if building yourself is not an option, try to find a computer store that will do it for you. Where I live shops do it for 10 euros if you come to their office and ask about it.
November 28, 2012 5:45:17 PM

Yeah...its just that atm I wont be able to do so, but in sometime...who knows ;) 
November 28, 2012 11:52:38 PM

I tried Again but I failed...Worth the shot.
November 29, 2012 9:06:11 AM

Haha it's fine dude, if it's not an option then you can't help that - just get the best pre-built machine for the money and you've made the best decision available to you. It'll be perfectly capable of playing those two games, plus many others.
November 29, 2012 5:14:59 PM

I hope it runs Skyrim, Its looks great in LP's.
November 29, 2012 5:32:45 PM

What's LP's? It might struggle a bit with Skyrim, but at least you won't lose a year of your life in the game :-)
November 29, 2012 6:55:19 PM

Lp(Lets play)
In low resolution would I lag alot in Skyrim?
November 29, 2012 8:30:44 PM

I'm afraid Skyrim probably won't be an option on that card... you never know though - why not download the demo and see it plays?
November 30, 2012 3:45:04 AM

It will work on medium settings for sure. GT 630 is rebranded GT 430.

November 30, 2012 12:07:13 PM

I think the GT630 is actually a re-badged GT440, so based on how the GT430 performed in that benchmark, you should be getting even better performance! Provided of course you're playing at that resolution or lower.
November 30, 2012 12:18:00 PM

No, it's GT 430. It has exact amount of CUDA cores. GT 440 has 50% more.
November 30, 2012 1:01:23 PM

According to Wikipedia, the GT440 has the same number of cores as the GT430. I think a 50% difference would place the GPUs pretty far apart performance-wise?

If anyone with a Wikipedia account can confirm inaccurate information on that page, you'll be making the Internet a better place if you correct it :-) I'd like to believe I can trust the specs listed on there.
November 30, 2012 2:20:34 PM

Good news for the OP then (not so much for his girlfriend - that game will swallow your life!).
