    I'm seeing a price of $60 -$20 for the rebate and another $10 for the code so $30.

    Not sure if that's much of a deal for a 520, unless you want the two DVI -out connectors. This ones a lot short on the Effective memory 1000Mhz vs reference of 1800Mhz.

    Here's a review on a similar EVGA except running at the 1800Mhz, some interesting points in the conclusion.

    There this XFX 6750 1GB DDR3 Bundled with AMD 2GB DDR3 1333MHz (PC3 10600) Memory Module for $45 -AR$30. With DVI, HDMI, & DP. it is a dual slot though and will use a little more in power.

    64bit equals slow. For an office computer dual monitor system this would be fine.

    Price seems on the high side for having a rebate, I vaguely recall getting a GT 620 for something like $15 or $20 AR last fall and it had a large enough heatsink that it could probably run passively if you're not gaming with it...

    I don't see the point of a smallish 'sink on a full height card, it'll just need the fan spinning faster/louder to stay at the same temperature.

    It's EVGA, so pray you don't need warranty service.

    Hmm, OK but for around 50% or less cost increase you can double the # of Cuda cores going with a GT 620, or sometimes a 630 if you catch a good sale (+ rebate) price on them. Right now even a 610 with the same # of Cuda cores is a little cheaper than $30 after rebate.
