building my parents a low end budget PC (not really for gaming) however ive narrowed down a low end graphics card between these 2, but im having trouble finding comparisons between these 2.

Depressingly, the 630 looks more powerful than my 9600gt :(
Well that's progress after all.

I can't actually see the 610 on there (is it there?), but I reckon it's probably weaker than most modern integrated GPUs and best avoided.

Do they even need a graphics card at all? Why not integrated graphics?

Not sure how to read that website.
But considering it's got more cores, more memory, and higher clock rates, shouldn't it be faster?


-Edit
Looks like the bandwidth makes the difference in this case, but just barely.
Hurray, I'm only at the bottom end, not below it :)
