Hi. The current generation of Nvidia cards are GTX 6xx. So, the GTX 560 Ti is last year's design. The other two are older.

Without knowing how your brother is going to use his PC, it's impossible to suggest the right graphics card for him. Here's the questions to answer:

- If it's a manufactured PC, what's the model?
- If it's a custom built PC, what are the components? (CPU, Case, PSU).

- what applications are used?
- if for gaming:
- what's the screen resolution
- what games does he play
- budget (is the 560 Ti at the upper range for your budget?)

AMD vs Nvidia. It depends on the applications.

I'd let your brother make the decision, assuming he knows more about videocards.

FYI GeForce 630 is significantly slower than 560 despite being "next gen". If you want maximum gaming performance out of all three 560 is the way to go. Although to be honest, I'd look into AMD videocards, generally they provide better bang for the buck.
