my asus nvidia gt 520 ddr3 2gb silent gets overheated while i play games.
my motherboard is Intel DG41wv.
processor dual core 2.8 Ghz

or can this overheat will cause any damage to my graphics card ?

you should check your temps - that could be a psu problem for example

Just some general tips , Dust off all fans and the card itself. check your air flow and fans.

its a silent card, so no fans on GPU, how is your case airflow? maybe try to dust off the fans that are there.

Get MSI Afterburner to check the temperatures of the card.

And it might just be time for a new card, the GT520 pretty much sucks.

If you have CPU fans only and no case fans that's probably the problem.

well you could buy some cheap 120mm case fan and mount it somewhere near the craphics card so it blows some air on the heatsink
