Summary: I bought the GT 520 when it was on sale for $55, yet I still feel ripped off. I could never imagine paying full price for it! There are only two positive aspects: it runs on weak power supplies and it has OpenGL support. That's it.
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...
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.

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.

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...
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.
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.
