Still going

chris a., Newegg
25 December 2013
  • Pros: It's been 2 yrs and this card is still going strong. Handled many photoshop files over 3gb. It manages some online games like WOT and STWOR. But isn't the greatest. Still all in all a very good purchase
  • Cons: None

Works well for what it is.

John M., Newegg
1 December 2013
  • Summary: I bought this card to install on my son's 5 year old EMachine so he could play his online games like Wiazards101, Clone Wars, etc. Nothing too intense, he's only 9. Problem was the onboard graphics and memory were being overburdened. By installing this card and taking the video rendering away from the motherboard, it's like running a whole new machine for him.
  • Pros: Works well with Windows 7 and 8.
  • Cons: None really if you're looking for a simple upgrade for an older system.

Pretty Good Card

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Summary: While playing Garry's Mod, I could run it on the highest settings in the game but the card got to 106C, so don't do that
  • Pros: Does the job if you need something simple and cheap, also it plays games at 30 FPS, and it runs 2 monitors, no problems.
  • Cons: If you want performance, consider getting a more expensive card. If you put too much strain on the card it can easily overheat.

Poor documentation

Douglas P., Newegg
27 April 2013
  • Summary: I bought this because the company provided monitors & video cards do not have enough resolution to propely display a schematic or PDF data sheet. I bought a 2560x1440 monitor from *elsewhere* to go with it. Nowhere in the documentation, or labeling on the board itself does it mention which port supports dual link DVI.
  • Pros: Cheap, dual link DVI, supports 2560x1600 resolutions, It can be made to work.
  • Cons: Poor documentation, Drivers on disk would not install on XP, Downloaded drivers caused blue screen on XP when dual link DVI monitor was plugged into single link DVI port. Has 3 outputs, can only drive two monitors at a time. does not come with a mini HDMI to HDMI adaptor.

Great video card twith great customer service.

Vincent L., Newegg
24 January 2013
  • Pros: Much like cars, I hesitate to work on my computer and usually leave it to a pro. My reason for buying this video card is for dual monitors for work, and not gaming. Using EggXpert's forum, I was able to find the correct card for my computer and received the video card promptly. EVGA's customer service was excellent. Very polite and patient, and I was able to get the dual monitors working after three calls. Inexpensive card, fast shipping, Excellent customer service fr...
  • Cons: None so far other then a few minor hurdles installing. Great customer service made remedying the problems easy.

Great card for the price

Andrew L., Newegg
8 October 2012
  • Summary: Bought this card to drive two extra monitors, one via HDMI and one DVI. I already have a Geforce 560 TI for games. Windows setup was painless. Linux setup required editing some x11 config files, but eventually got it working.
  • Pros: 1920x1080, sharp video, Linux compatible, cheap.
  • Cons: None.

good card..dont listen to others

Anonymous, Newegg
15 April 2012
  • Summary: bought this card because my 9400gt after years of faithfull service was showing its age after purchase of a 24" hd monitor and it was starting to overexhaust itself. im a student so i have to make due with what i can. all above listed games were played on low to medium settings at 1024x768 with a range from 20-30 fps on this system.
  • Pros: quiet, plug and play capable with most off the shelf desktops, easily doubled my performance on wow, skyrim, crysis 2, fallout new vegas, battlefield 3, and others. not an ultra settings or even a high settings card but if your looking to play a game and not critique jagged edges and such its good.
  • Cons: none at the moment, only quam is heat which the fermi's are notorious for.

Great product, great low price!

88_keyman, Ebay

  • Summary: My overall experience with the GT 520 is very good. I have a desktop with a quad-core processor & 4GBs of DDR3 memory, but needed a GPU capable video card to open up the GPU feature in my video conversion softeware. This allows me to speed up my video conversion rate and free up system memory, which essentially keeps my computer operating smoothly. This is a decent video card that is just right for MY needs and the price is great.
