For Tekken 5 I would reccomend going with Nvidia 460 SE just like Rezard has or buy a Nvidia GTX 580/560. Don't go with ATI 46xx series although the HP Special ATI Radeon HD 4650 DP 1GB works quite good for me and plays Tekken 5 with around 57-64 fps. Better go with Nvidia 460 SE or if possible bit above.
Onboard Cards are slow for PCSX2. Well, both of your Card will play God Of War at good speed. Grand Tourismo will run good or fine but will experience slowdown(sometimes a bit heavy) often.
both of these chosen models are slow for GT and gow
best to get the HD58?? or HD68?? or GTX460Ti~higher Ti or GTX560~higher Tt
and the i3 needs to be upgraded also w/ i5-????K or i7-????K unlocked it ranging 4.0~5.0ghz.
GT and GoW is a monster game application.
Main Hub:i5-4670(3.4Ghz Factory Clocked),ATi Radeon HD7770(GDDR5+128-bit+1GB),Win 10 SL(x64),ASUS H8M-E,8GB DDR3 RAM

GT 430 is basically a decent enough card. It just may not always be able to handle as much up-scaling as you might want it to, or none at all.
Radeon HD 4600s are about the same, but it depends on the particular data rate of the card. Most are about equal to a GT 430, while the best is just a bit better (the kind of difference you could OC for).
