I am purchasing a new computer.  Are there any known problems with this card?

If that's in a "new" computer, well ... it's an older card with a small amount of older (slower) vRAM ... and only 384 CUDA cores, well under what most folks want now for GPUs. Cheap, yea ... but pretty minimalist.

The newest series is the "thousand" group, 1080, 1070, 1060, 1050 I think. Higher numbers are a bit spendier but tend to have more good bits to them. I'm running an EVGA 1060/6GB that was a bit under $300USD a couple months back, and has been performing very well. For what the GPU does in this program, which isn't a lot of things. Mainly color, major re-scaling (resizing), Warp stabilizer, that sort of effect.

To really get the most bang for the buck, it's the balance of parts for the rig that matters. So ... give a list of the total parts for the machine, and folks here will advise.

There have been two different versions of that GT 730 DDR3 GPU, both of which are actually slower and weaker than even the integrated inside-the-CPU Intel HD Graphics in newer mainstream Intel CPUs. One is a GPU that dates way back to the low-end Fermi-based GT 430 of 2010, a lousy GPU even in its day, with only 96 CUDA cores; the other is a newer Kepler implementation with 384 CUDA cores but is hamstrung by its 64-bit memory bus. You don't want either one of those two in any newer Intel or AMD CPU-based PC. The only version of any of the GT 730 variants that are as powerful as or more powerful than today's integrated graphics is/was the version with 384 CUDA cores and 64-bit GDDR5 (not DDR3) memory, but it is not sufficiently more powerful than integrated to justify its current street price.
