5 out of 5 eggsNice cards

Pros: Bought two of these cards for an audio editing and music production computer. Running 4 monitors off of them with no issues. Nice cheap alternative for doing non-video related work. Very quiet which is a big plus when my tower is not isolated from the room I am working in.

Cons: None so far, great cards.

4 out of 5 eggsgood card

Pros: For office, video work, and light gaming this card works great.

Cons: rebate process

Other Thoughts: Mail in Rebate requires a UPC barcode. Product comes shipped in an anti-static bag wrapped in bubble wrap....so you won't have a barcode to send in.... But of course for a fee there is a no mail in express version of the rebate process... best of luck....

4 out of 5 eggsPerfect for htpc

Pros: Very low power draw. 1080P24 acceleration/dx11. Small. Runs cool. HDMI with integrated sound.

Cons: Stream processor count is low. As stated previously, you will have some problems if you run interlaced material a lot (which I don't). Nvidia drivers are having issues with perfectly smooth 23.976Hz playback as of v259.46 (in most programs).

Other Thoughts: I have this running in a completely passively cooled system with an external 220W AC adapter. This thing sips power. I get dxva acceleration with 23/24 hz playback in xbmc just fine (as it can re-clock the audio to match the variable refresh rate).

3 out of 5 eggsvdpau a little disappointing

Pros: Quiet. Very low power. Runs cool.

Cons: As mentioned by another reviewer, vdpau performance is not as good as gt220. Also a little expensive considering the lack of performance.

Other Thoughts: This replaces a (2 year old?) gt 220 in my mythtv box. This one stutters when using the advanced deinterlacer. Runs fine with all of the others. Would have probably bought a gt 430 had I researched a little more.

The 220 had a very noisy fan, so overall this is still an improvement.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect low profile HTPC card!

Pros: I installed this in a Dell Dimension C521, which is a nightmare of a machine to upgrade (slim BTX case with a 280w power supply you can't upgrade). Going from GeForce 6150LE onboard to this GT 520 is a major improvement to say the least.

This card is very low watt. 520s generally idle around 6w and will chew up around 31w at full load; all of which is drawn straight from the PCI-E slot. (A PCI-E slot can deliver up to 75 watts) So any PSU rated at around 300 watts should run this card.

Low heat. Fan-less made me a bit worried, but the card idled at 43c and peaked at around 55c under full load. Keep in mind, this was measured with a case that has practically no airflow. Silent.

Directx11/OpenGL 4. Everything nowadays can benefit from these newer cards. Even the web browser I'm using to write this review in (Firefox) can get some graphics acceleration. Undoubtedly this card will do movies (CoreAVC). This card will even do some games, but it's not really built to be a gaming ca

Cons: I had to bend a heatsink fin out of the way so I could install it. No big deal.

Like I said, it's no gaming card. It did meet my expectations though when I saw it running a few Ungine benchmarks. I even tried Dolphin out, which surprisingly seemed to run ok.

Other Thoughts: I think it's a pretty powerful card considering it's low wattage. I also plan on running a HDMI cable from the 520 to the tv at some point.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Fanless, low profile, VDPAU support, native HDMI with full HD audio.

Cons: Based on the specifications, you'd expect it to be as good as a GT 220 for VDPAU use. Unfortunately, actual VDPAU performance is no better than a G210. Nvidia needs to improve their drivers for the Fermi architecture.
