IGPs at the top end (not including apple) currently top out at about the 1030 with slow memory level.  So an iGP with good graphics will beat the lowest end dGPs.  Not all IGPs are at that top level though.

 

Life is like a bowl of chocolates: there are all these little crinkly paper cups everywhere.

Depends on what GPU he can squeeze into his budget.
GT 730 ?  Fermi or Kepler variant ? Which model?

How much RAM that Dell desktop has.
What he's going to use it for ?
What's the CPU ?

From a quick search the HD 630 seems to be slower than the GT 730, around half the performance. But neither are what I'd call capable gaming graphics. We're talking about sub 30 fps at 720p low in modern big budget games.

Lowering expectations towards older and less demanding games would be fine tho. So if the worst you try to run are things like Fortnite, Minecraft and GTA V, you should be fine.

Still would recommend something better. See if you can at least get something like a GDDR5 GT 1030 or RX 550 or something similar. As the bare minimum. GTX 1050 Ti / GTX 1060 / RX 570 / RX 5500 would be much better if even somewhat demanding games would be played, but that obviously depends on the budget and not everybody has the money.

A GT 730 is more of a money sink than a gaming option. If your friend can tolerate gaming at 720p low graphics on the Intel 630 (I recommend that the system have faster ram if that is possible because that will boost gaming performance of the integrated graphics) then the money that would be spent on the GT 730 would be better saved and spent later on a decent graphics card.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

Trash beauty:
