I am getting an new computer. my old graphics card was an Intel(r) hd graphics family, my new one will be the NVIDA GeForce GT630 4GB DDR3 Graphics, is this graphic card better? a lot, or a little? i know this NVIDA is on the lower end, but i do plan on upgrading it in the future.

the 630 is faster but if you need a laptop and the choice is between the 2, then go with what has the fastest CPU. Both cards will be bad for gaming.
here is a review http://www.notebookcheck.net/NVIDIA-GeForce-GT-630M.63761.0.html
PS if it is a laptop then you will not be able to upgrade the videocard.
if it is a desktop and is prebuilt then you will have a time consuming and expensive upgrade as you will likely have to not only replace the GPU, but also the power supply (at which point you might as well just build a new PC (of build a custom one from the start which will allow you to get more performance for the money (especially if you can reuse older parts, eg use the old hard drive, cd drive and if it is mid to full sized ATX then you can also reuse the case
