Someone I know has got a new pryon rig with the specs as follows

i7-4470 3.4Ghz
16GB RAM
3TB HDD
120GB SATA 3 SSD
GeForce GT630 4GB PCI-E graphics

They have asked me to help them decide what to upgrade (with a budget of about 200 USD) in order to be able to play more modern games. Straight up I can see that the graphics card looks very outdated and so I think it would be best to get a better card with the cash. Suggestions?

You could get a 660ti for a little over 200. Would be a pretty decent upgrade.

Put all of that towards a new graphics card. You might be limited by the power supply so check that first.

If the case has room try and go for a 760. If the room isn't there or the PSU is lacking the 750ti would be great.

The graphics card is the weakest link there, definitely go with that. Just make sure the power supply can feed it. If you're unsure, then 650w if generally a safe bet on new parts.
