EVGA GeForce GT 520 (Fermi) 01G-P3-1526-KR 1GB 64-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Works well with Windows 7 and 8.

Cons: None really if you're looking for a simple upgrade for an older system.

Other Thoughts: I bought this card to install on my son's 5 year old EMachine so he could play his online games like Wiazards101, Clone Wars, etc. Nothing too intense, he's only 9. Problem was the onboard graphics and memory were being overburdened. By installing this card and taking the video rendering away from the motherboard, it's like running a whole new machine for him. Well worth the price to keep an older machine around for a few more years before absolutely needing to upgrade to a bigger, faster system.

EVGA GeForce GT 520 (Fermi) 01G-P3-1526-KR 1GB 64-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

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.
