    Hello rdx12311

    What's your budget?

    If you're going to game you're going to need something a little better than those two.

    The 240 would probably outperform the 630 after looking at the specs but the 240 has GDDR3 Vram. The 630 has GDDR5 Vram.

    The 630 supports directx 11 - 11.1 the 240 supports directx 10. If you can swing some more dollars and get something better, you'll be glad you did.

    Can you list the specs of your pc or the pc it's going in please?

    Indeed for gaming neither the GT630 nor the R7 240 are good options, just too slow for anything more than browser stuff or ancient games... and those can be handled by integrated graphics just as well.

    Thanks for the specs I looked them over, here is something you can have a look at.

    The r7 240 beats the gt630 everywhere except the memory bandwidth.

    I don't think I would even consider a 4GB version of those cards, I don't see them coming close to using 4GB.

    Is this in your price range?

    Scratch that here is a way better one for 59.99 after rebate.

    Can your psu handle it?

    Here's the thing, those 4 GB cards are going to run out of performance before the 4GB of memory is used. The higher the resolution you go the more the performance hit. The 4GB of memory will be a waste with a low end card. Check my link above, if you can afford that card and your psu can support it, get that one.

    If not go for the asus gt640.
