The GeForce GT 630 scores 744 on the Passmark video card benchmark. There are several variations of that card, with various amounts of memory.

PassMark Software - Video Card Benchmarks - Mid-to-High Range Video Cards

It sells for about $ 50 to $100 US now.

Are you going to get an Intel 4590 processor? That processor has built-in HD 4600 graphics, which scores 726 on the Passmark video benchmark---virtually the same as the GT 630.

I don't game, but based on that, maybe there's not much point in adding the GT 630 to the system.

Maybe nothing.

You haven't given enough information.

What games will you play?

At what settings?

At what resolution?

If it were me, I'd order the parts and build the thing with no video card. Use the built-in video on the 4590.

Then play your desired games at your desired settings and make a judgement about gaming performance.

If gaming performance is unsatisfactory, then maybe add that GT 630 and re-evaluate.

If still unsatisfactory, then start another thread to deal with that and buy additional parts at that time. Maybe you'll have more money then too.

If you build it first, you can also evaluate temperatures as well. You may decide you need to replace noisy or inadequate fans--either on the CPU cooler or intake/exhaust. And it will help you become comfortable with the building and testing process.

I was looking for something more specific.

Like 1024 x 768 or 1600 x 900 or 1920 x 1080 or whatever you have in mind.

Be as specific as you can about the requirements for this PC.

1920 x 1080

The can handle that. I want this PC to last a good amount of time, 4-5 years. This is what this build is for: Debugging, Gaming, Rendering, Photoshopping. Just ask if you need more info.

OK; you provided enough info I'd say.

I'll let others comment on the video card as I don't game. I'm pretty sure others will tell you to upgrade from the 630 or built-in graphics.

If you can set aside say $30 to $50 a month toward another video card, you may want to just build the thing now and get some idea of how well it does for non-gaming without an upgraded video card. And then in 3 to 6 months, splurge on another video card.

But if your budget is not a problem, then jump on all of it at one time.

I'd go with a better case, but if you have a limited budget and need to cut corners, I can understand your choice.
