Do you plan on gaming? If so, you need something better then the GT 620. Something along the lines of this:

PNY GTX 550 TI PCIe 2.0 Graphics Card - 1 GB buy online | Currys

Normally I'd recommend something a bit beefier, but you are on a budget.

The GT 620 is just a rebranded version of the GT 430. They're the same card.
