Failed to work after driver install

SpeedingCheetah, Amazon
4 April 2013
  • Summary: It worked and displayed video using the default VGA driver, but when I installed the official Nvidia drivers, Win 7 rebooted and the card was not recognized and resolution was all messed up. Could not get card to function properly. This was in a Dell 755 SFF. Put back my org card (Nvidia g100) and that worked fine.

Fit the bill but

MisterClean, Amazon

  • Summary: My parents video card was failing and they needed a cheap(er) replacement since they don't do any heavy graphics applications. This product was priced perfectly and it looked awesome. It has been 6-12 months since I bought it and the plastic fan started making noises. Despite cleaning the fan it was still noisy so I sprayed some silicon spray on it and that did the trick. I'm still happy with it but the fan shouldn't be noisy at this young of age.

Great card for budget buyers

  • Summary: I got this card because I was on a budget, and it worked out very nicely. Specifically, I got it to play TES: Skyrim on my very old pc, which it did. My only complaint is the fan noise which is very loud even when simply web browsing.

Nvidia GT520 is a great buy

Dave F., Amazon
10 March 2013
  • Summary: Though Nvidia has has superseded this GPU by the GT610, I consider this a higher end video card. Very few cards in this class have 2gb of memory for the price and Nvidia continuously updates the driver despite it not being a current offering. A true test for this card is whether is can pass the qualification software test by DirecTV.

Everything I needed at a good price

BigJack Rolls, Amazon
6 February 2013
  • Summary: While this is an older model of graphics card, it has plenty of power ( 2 G of RAM !!! ) , and works great for anything but a hard core gamer. This card is perfect for someone who wants to use two monitors side-by-side, do graphics editting, or play games (other than the 'cutting edge' latest and greatest games). Highly recommended ... and it comes with Windows XP drivers, too !

It's an okay Graphics card

Domenic Masuzzo, Amazon
16 January 2013
  • Summary: If you want to watch HD videos or just have a card for a crappy computer then this is the card for you. Do not buy it for intense gaming unless u plan on playing on low graphics all day. the 2GB of ram it has just throws u off.

Don't let the gigiabytes fool you

J. Taylor "THX 1138", Amazon
10 January 2013
  • Summary: Not great, but I knew better than to expect much out of this card. Certainly worth the price to me. Much better than what I had on my on-board video card. Runs Photoshop and most my games (Not really into gaming). I would suggest if you're not looking for anything great, but want to upgrade your PC.
