EVGA GeForce GT 520 (Fermi) DirectX 12 (feature level 11_0) 01G-P3-1526-KR 1GB 64-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card
  • 1GB 64-Bit DDR3
  • Core Clock 810MHz
  • 2 x DVI (1 Single Link, 1 Dual Link) 1 x mini HDMI
  • 48 CUDA Cores
  • PCI Express 2.0 x16

Pros:

Greatly improved online game performance over the onboard video. Easy to install.

Cons:

No VGA Output, May require new Power Supply if installing on lower end PC( see other thoughts)

Other Thoughts:

I installed this into my Son's 4 year old EMachine hoping to fix an issue with his online gaming when playing some of the kid level games like Clone Wars Adventures, Wizards, etc. The on board video was poor at best. Video would Stutter, lag, making it completely unplayable. Installed the new Video card and it runs like a new machine now that video is controlled by the card and not taking up memory from the motherboard.
Only issue was, I needed to install a bigger power supply since the factory system only had a 250W PS. Luckily, I had a 400W PS that I'd taken off one of my other systems. It recommended at least a 350w supply for this card.

So for a minor, relatively cheap upgrade on an older system I really recommend this card.
