"Should I go for it?"

Not if you're into gaming. Use this chart as a guide:

You should also consider adding more RAM & replacing the PSU, it's cheap low end junk.

Thank you riider for reply.
Actually, I was thinking of getting into gaming. This card is the only card I have in my budget. I will add more RAM and buy a good PSU, but for now will my pc support this card? Like in terms of pci express slot, power rating of psu,etc.

✔ Best Answer
The GT630 with DDR3 is actually just a rebadged GT440.

I suggest you look for a card with 128-bit GDDR5 memory. 1GB or 2GB makes little difference on a lower end card. Have a look at this gaming benchmark comparison & notice which card is on the bottom. Also notice that it's the GDDR5 version, the DDR3 version would rank even lower.

Video card memory & system memory are 2 completely different/separate things.

If you can somehow manage a GTX750 card, that is about where I would recommend a lower level gaming card. It is also light on system resources so it will make a big difference without requiring an expensive power supply.
Try the other suggestions first though and get what you can when you can.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Thank you riider and fingers for the reply.
GTX750 is way over my budget.So, today I can not afford it.
I am waiting for another 7 days before buying the card, in case DDR5 version becomes available.
Thanks for your help.
