I don't see a GT 630 listed on the comparison sites but the 8800GT beats a GT 640.

Good site here for comparing the basics of cards: http://www.hwcompare.com/12966/geforce-8800-gt-1gb-vs-geforce-gt-640-ddr3/

Given than an 8800GT was in it's day a fairly high end gaming card, your not likely to find something that trounces it in the "HTPC/Budget"price range of under $130.
