This review is from: SPARKLE GeForce GT 520 (Fermi) SXT5202048S3LNM 2GB 64-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile Ready Video Card
Pros: Bought this card for gaming on an an HP slimline, card looks and works great on even a 220w PSU! TDP was rated at 29w when at 'max' capacity. While this is not the top of the line for gaming GPUs, I have tested it with Fallout 3, SR2, L4D 1 and 2, TES: Oblivion, Mass Effect 2, Dragon Age: Origins, and a few other games, and you get an average of around 20 - 35 FPS in each on 'high' settings, with the exception of ME2, that was played on medium settings with 20 - 30 FPS. As an HTPC, this card couldn't be better with the cheap price, extremely silent fan, and low profile design for smaller cases (if used for HTPCs), the video quality is also top notch for such an entry level GPU.
Pros: * Fits Low Profile PCs perfectly. (Also includes two Low Profile brackets) * Fan is nearly dead silent, even under load. * Requires a 300w PSU to be safe, but can run on a stock 220w PSU with no side effects. * Runs most games with an average of 20 - 35 FPS * Pretty cheap for what you can get o
Cons: * Slight flickering on my monitor at first, was corrected by re-adjusting the GPU in the slot.
Other Thoughts: It set my overall Windows Experience score to 6.0, with Windows 7 Aero (Glass) Graphics at 6.2 and the Graphics at 6.0
