I want to buy the GPU in the title to my brother because it can run NFS Underground 3. But can it run Shaders in Minecraft getting more than 30FPS?

Doubtful that gpu could reasonably play minecraft without shader. I would buy something more powerful like the Gtx 750.

it could, probably run the game, anything better then a 9600/2400 will do the trick. Whether it can run it with all the appropriate shaders or not is another matter. (the game itself isnt all that system intensive, you can play it on most smartphones for crying out loud) You may just have to play it on the basics.

ya game play should be smooth but I'm sure you won't have fancy settings but base settings with this card should be good.

Okay, in the meantime, I searched a bit more and thought about a Gigabyte GeForce GT730 2 GB GDDR5. I know, it's kinnda the same thing, but it has more CUDA cores. A link for the specs: http://www.altex.ro/gigabyte-geforce-gt-730-2gb-gddr5-64-bit-hdmi-dvi-d-sub-gv-n730d5-2gi/

If you don't know where to check the specs or what those words mean, you can tell me which one to translate, or to translate it all.

I tested the GT 630 2GB GDDR3 64 Bit and it acted pretty good in comparision to an R7 240 4GB. The GeForce got some good results, but not as good as the R7 240 in Shaders, getting only 30 FPS in Chocapic Medium Beta 6.1, the only games where the R7 lost where the nonintensive VRAM games. So, i guess a "three times as powerful in processing power" as the GT630 GPU would act pretty well, smoking the R7 240 in most of the games, that being the GT730.

Tom's Hardware GPU charts doesn't include everything, but a game benchmark should give you a general idea of the relative level of performance. Or to put it another way, look at the % difference, not the FPS numbers themselves. Take manufacturer claims with a pinch of review research.

I found a second hand GTX 650 TI 2GB GDDR5. That is good, right?

If I remember correctly, the Nvidia GT 740 is a rebrand of the GTX 650. Therefore, the 650 Ti should theoretically be between GT 740 and GTX 750Ti. The 750 was a new architecture though, so I'm not 100% sure. Check the benchmarks.
