Summary: This was the perfect upgrade added to my daughter's HP Pavilion Slimline PC [HP-504966-001], but I had to upgrade the power supply too. This card requires the system power supply to support a minimum of 300W or you may experience crashes, freezing and other failures including the Epic Fail, Windows BSOD in the middle of your intense all time highest ranking last-man-standing zombie fragging deathmatch!!@^#&!!!... or perhaps you were watching "The Notebook" on DVD.
Summary: Works great. I have it hooked to a 65 inch flat screen. Streaming movies has never been easier. Email that can be read from across the room. This setup is also good for people who have trouble with vision. I would recommend it to others.
Summary: this card isn't the best you can get for its price. the fan is horribly loud. it hardly improved graphics. i returned this item and it took an extremely long time to get a refund. i would not get this item unless you're only going to be typing word documents.
Performs as advertised. What a concept in these days of O'Bumbler.

Summary: It supports all of my admittedly older games, probably the toughest one being CRYSIS 2, on an old AMD processor rated at 1.8 Ghz running XP with 2 Gig. Other games I regularly still run are (Single Player mode only, I don't do on-line) Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 and 3 and 4 Crysis Warhead Dead Island Far Cry 1 and 2 Half Life 1 and 2 Max Pane 1 and 2 Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2 System Shock 2 Track Mania Sunrise Mass Effect 2, but the lack of any...
Summary: I needed to add a Graphics card to my desktop on-board graphics motherboard to relieve my main processor of the additional work of video processing. I had just acquired a very intensive research software application and I could literally see my computer slow down as it tried to do both video processing and database research. This quiet GT520 (no fan) graphics board was easy to install and my windows 7 system had no trouble making it work well.
Summary: Now i dont play insanely graphic games but my computer could barely render skyrim with windowed 800x640 res and low setting, with a power supply of 270w, intel family 2000 graphics card, 6GB of DD3 RAM, and a 2.6Hz dual core processor. I bought this graphics card and i was able to play on max settings, fullscreen mode, flawless gameplay until i change the res to 1600x900. But in 1200x800 its a flawless gameplay.
Summary: After two years of great service running dual monitors, the fan on this card started getting noisy, eventually card performance seemed to slow and the noise rose to a squeal. Be aware, the fan is very much a weak spot on this otherwise good value in video cards. I won't buy another.
Worked with my Dell Studio Slim 540s without a power supply upgrade. A+

Summary: Worked on my Dell Studio Slim 540s (Plug'n'Play) without issue. No need to upgrade my power supply. There is a low profile bracket kit where you can unscrew ports from the metal plate and screw them back into two brackets so it fits properly in a slim model.
