Score 0 Deemo13 a c 198 U Graphics card June 21, 2012 12:01:31 AM If its a good power supply, its worth keeping. If not, then we may as well get rid of it. The 520 is a nice card to put in like HTPC builds, but not at all for gaming. Cheaper than the 670 would drop you in the GTX570 and HD7850 territory. Those run at around $250 or somewhere. The HD6950 is a good card at the $200 price point right now. Score 0 Related resources Help on upgrading!
