Which of these would be the better video card for video rendering, 3d modeling and game simulation?

I intend to buy the first one, but would the PNY be better or what direction should i go towards?

Newegg.com - Galaxy 43GGS8HX3SPZ GeForce GT 430 (Fermi) 1GB 128-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card



Newegg.com - PNY VCGGT5201XPB GeForce GT 520 (Fermi) 1GB 64-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile Ready Video Card


thanks in advance

better to get a gt240 or ati 5570. they are significantly faster than both and around the same price. http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/geforce-gt-430-gf10...
gt 520 is the slowest > http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/Zotac/GeForce_GT_520...

HEy not a 5570 i think you wanna say 5670. the 512Mb model is around $65 or somewhere near to it. and since you are buying now you should get as big graphics card as possible and please make sure that your PSU could handle the card you buy.

Yea your right, instead of the gt 240 or radeon 5670, would a radeon 5770 be considerably better

It should (very much so), but it depends on if your power supply and cpu can handle the card. What are your system specs?

The Galaxy GT430 is known to have problems. Yesterday someone else posted here complaining of problems after the card died after a 5% overclock.

Consider a different brand or model. 5670 better.

Wait even if you have decided to go with nvidia's X50 series Graphics card, I would say go with the 250Gts, As many people have problems with nvidia's 4XX series or if you want DX11 go with nvidia 550Gts.
