You can start with what components your PC has, or if it's a pre-built what model and brand. Then budget, and the purpose of the upgrade/PC.

Yes you can put a GT 630 in there, but it isn't much better than the IGP. The i5 3330 is a great chip. If you bought a new PSU and a GTX 660 or better you would pretty much max any game easy.
