5 out of 5 eggsnot bad

Pros: For the prize you get what you pay for. I got this because it does not need external power. Great for a compact case with no way of upgrading power supply. Plays Crysis on low spec. Did a lot more than I expected. Worth the money. Took drivers easy even with Vista.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: I see people complain too much. What did you expect for the prize. It is not a $700 card that needs a 1000 watt power supply. I think it was made for those people that have a mini computer with a small PS. Dx11 on a small PC was a big improvement from the on board video. Maybe you should complain that a mini power supply does not have SLI cables for duel video cards and a 1000 watt. Maybe in ten years we will be there but not yet. When I started I had 4 megs of ram and a 1 meg video card. I could play Doom, I was the envy of everybody and that cost me $3000 back in '98. People expect way too much...Period ...Stop complaining

1 out of 5 eggsDon't buy

Pros: none

Cons: Everything

Other Thoughts: This card and this company is bunk. The card will not take any drivers. The drivers tell me there is no compatible hardware installed. Tech support is bunk and now I am told I have no warranty. EVGA = bunk! Buy better, buy ECS!!!

Manufacturer Response:

Hello,

I do apologize if the card isn't working properly and for any confusion on the warranty as your card comes with a 3 year warranty. In terms of the driver make sure you are connected to the graphics card and not the on-board video. Next ensure you are using an administrator account. If you are still having issues contact our 24/7 technical support (888)-881-3842 or me directly.

1 out of 5 eggsNot good at all for gamer

Pros: Cheap, slim

Cons: worse than older models ,
very bad for gaming,

Manufacturer Response:

Hello,

The 520 is not designed as a gaming card. It is designed for HTPC setups or for people who need dual displays. If you are looking for a budget gaming card I would recommend a 460/550 or higher.

Regards,
Matthew

1 out of 5 eggsjunk

Pros: none come to mind

Cons: this card is junk, total waste of money, bought it at best buy thinking a 500 series with 2GB ram would be a good upgrade... but my 1GB 9800GT out preforms this card in every way.

Other Thoughts: if you want a good card, save your cash, get a 9800GT for about half the price and get twice the performance

Manufacturer Response:

Hello,

I do apologize for any confusion. The 9800 has 112 cuda cores, where the 520 only has 48. Therefore the 9800GT will greatly outperform the 520 for gaming. The 520 is designed as a home theater PC graphics card allowing you to play movies and blurays at higher resolutions and with no lag as opposed to your on-board graphics.

3 out of 5 eggsNoisy

Pros: You get this card strictly for VRAM amount and tech capability, not for it's shader speed or it's ability to perform CUDA task. So it's nice that it has 2G of VRAM. It's the wrong speed for games... this is not a gaming card, but it's good for desktop stuff.

Cons: Useless for gaming. NOISY FAN. I got two and at 40%, those fans are audible, they're so small they make big noise. I'm going to rip them off the cards and make them passive, or put a big 120mm over them that is silent, this noise is crazy.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello,

The 520 card is designed for use in HTPC setups and is not intended to be a gaming card. Please contact our 24/7 technical support (888)-881-3842 so we can assist you with the fan noise issue.

4 out of 5 eggsVery good card

Pros: Low wattage, which is primarily what I was looking for.
Newest features, so it'll just be kinda slow but not totally obsolete in the near future.
More than enough power for HD video and light gaming.

Cons: I thought it should be a little more powerful considering that it's a Fermi card...

Other Thoughts: passive cooling would be cool.

2 out of 5 eggsevga video card

Pros: cheap

Cons: get what you pay for..........very low end video card. I had a 8300gt video card that worked as good as this one. Didn't bring my computer stat level up but.01 percent. Very sad video card for how current it is.

Other Thoughts: Newegg was excellent for a refund. Would definately buy another different card from newegg.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello,

I do apologize if you were not happy with the performance of the card. This specific card is mainly marketed for HTPC setups and is not designed for gaming. If you are looking for a budget gaming card I would recommend looking at a 550 or 560 graphics card.

5 out of 5 eggsPretty decent

Pros: Cost - it's low priced
Power - requires no extra power other than the PCI-E slot
Quiet - My 9800GT would out-noise the 200mm and 4x120mm fans on the Antec 900 case - absolutely no noticeable noise level from this card.
Low Profile - good for some, not a concern for me.
2GB on board memory - makes a difference.
Excellent DX11 entry level card.
The 10year warranty extension when I registered with EVGA was a very nice surprise. It's not listed with this model, but it is listed with the 1gb model. That offer ends shortly, though.

Cons: Memory is only 64bits wide - can make for an ugly bottleneck for certain graphics applications.
Card is slightly crippled in some ways, so not what any high end gamer would look for. No deception offered, though. All the details are available, and some homework would reveal this.
No SLI, but again, as advertised, and can still be used as a Physix card.

Other Thoughts: It's a good entry level card. It actually does fairly well with games, as long as a person doesn't require 4XAA/500FPS/All shaders going. It's not advertised as a gaming card, so it really shouldn't be expected to be one. It easily manages 35-60FPS on games like Duke Nukem Forever, Alice - The Madness Returns, and 35-50FPS with Fear 3, all at slightly reduced resolutions.
