I just want to ask a quick question that I need answered. I don't want people to just say how bad the card is and not say that it can play the games I ask.

Can the GT 520 1GB card play these games at a playable FPS rate at 720p or 1080p? Medium or Low settings I don't care for high or ultra settings:

1. Call of Duty 4.
2. Farcry 2.
3. MW2.
4. Black Ops.
5. Payday the heist.
6. Farcry 3.
7. Black ops 2.
8. Arma 2.
9. MW3.
10. X-Com: Enemy Unknown (2012)

I just want to be able to play these games, I don't care about the games looking amazing, I'm fine with low/medium settings.

You can play almost all of them. Especially not Far Cry 3 or Arma 2. The rest should work.

Heck if i can play them on a 9800GT card. I would say so, you may have to tweak some of the graphics options in the games like i do, but hey its play ability that counts more for me. Just bear in mind the resolution of the game will cause a hit also in the frame rate.

9800 GT is MUCH more powerful than GT 520 :) . If I had to estimate, GT 9800 would be around 3 times faster.

The hierarchy chart has the 9800 GT nine levels above the GT 520. It's not surprising really, since the GT 520 is roughly one tenth of a GTX 570, with slower memory. It may be a newer and better architecture than the 9800 GT, but that's just not nearly enough to overcome that gimping.

May be old but it was a good card for its time, and in a way still sort of is.
Just seen one new in its box for £40. Obviously dx 10 and not dx 11 but hey still a good all rounder of a card chaps.!

Will those games run at 30+ FPS at 720p or 768p?

Far Cry 3 will probably run at 20 FPS or less. I think that's the most demanding game on your list.
