My computer is an HP Slimline s5703w. I don't have much money and I'm looking for a card around $50. My friend got a GT 520 and he plays Diablo 3 on it, he says it runs fine and he hasn't seen any lag so far, but I'm not sure if Diablo 3 is a very demanding game. I may be buying a GT 520 soon if it's a good card, but I was looking through answers and noticed you guys don't seem to like that card. I also have no intentions on purchasing a new PSU because I don't have much money.

Thanks, I'll probably have like $70-$100 soon, so I might get the HD 6670.

Actually GT 520 sucks for gaming. I'd suggest boosting your budget to $60 and getting HD 6670. It is around 3 times as powerful as GT 520.

It's actually $44.99 after rebates :) .


That is not a low profile graphic card. That is a full height graphic card that only uses one slot. A low profile card is like a "half height" card.

The following is picture of a low profile HIS H667FN1G Radeon HD 6670 which is currently selling for $90 after rebate @ Newegg.com. It is pictured with a full height bracket which can be replaced with a low profile bracket that is included with the video card.

You'll need a new PSU to upgrade your video card.

Your computer has a 220w PSU. AMD reccomends a 400w PSU for the 6670.

So that means I'm just going to have to stick with the much hated 520, right?

No jsrudd is spreading misinformation. You don't need to upgrade your power supply. HD 5670 is way better than GT 520 too.

That HIS card has GDDR5. More memory bandwidth is always better.
