Need a PCI-Ex x1-x4 Video Card, better then HD4000 CPU

Motherboard for this build is an Intel DH61AG. This part of the build is absolutely set in stone.

What I need is the best Video Card to go in there. The best "all in one" that I can find is a i7-3770S CPU, due to its onboard HD4000. So I guess thats my baseline.

I have found a couple of cards, ZOTAC ZT-50608-10L GeForce GT 520 (Fermi) 512MB 64-bit DDR3 being the best from what I can tell.

The HD4000 will be fine for most uses, but the system will see some light gaming, (mostly Blizzard games, WoW, SC2, Diablo).

Any expert opinions? Never played with PCI-EX x1 video cards before, and have never been impressed with Intel's HD Graphics.

GT 630 or GT 620 is also a good choice

The 6450 is about as good as it's going to get, but I'm not really sure it's worth the very minor improvement in performance over the HD 4000. :|

Thanks so much for the info. That last link from Xbitlabs is the clincher, I guess we'll just forgo a dedicated video card. I was hoping it would be comperable to the A6's, but...

Thanks so much for the replies

Well, in any case, it's highly dependent on the game. Good luck on whatever decision you make :)
