How well can the GeForce GT 520 run games
Based on current gaming requirements the GeForce GT 520 is considered one of the weakest cards and wont meet modern AAA game specs. Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 11 requirement.

How many years will the GeForce GT 520 graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GT 520 in your PC? You should definitely consider replacing this GeForce GT 520 graphics card, if it is still in your gaming PC.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GT 520? A good choice when looking to upgrade the GeForce GT 520 would be the 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Ti 6GB which meets 921 of the 1000 top game’s recommended system requirements and has 2633% better performance. Alternatively a suitable upgrade choice for the GeForce GT 520 is the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB, which is 1909% more powerful and can run 725 of the 1000 most demanding PC games beating their recommended requirements.

GeForce GT 520 Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
GeForce GT 520 is an Entry-Level Graphics Card based on the first revision of the Fermi Architecture.


Architecture
The Fermi Architecture is manufactured with a 40nm technology and uses a technique known as Hot Clocking: The Shaders are clocked twice as fast as the Central Unit. While this leads to a reasonable performance boost, it causes enormous amounts of energy dissipation, leading, ultimately, to a significantly higher operating temperature.
Fermi is also the first GPU architecture with fully cached memory access which increases memory performance.


GPU
It equips a GPU codenamed GF119-300-A1 which has 1 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 48 Shader Processing Units, 8 TMUs and 4 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 810MHz.


Memory
The GPU accesses a 1GB frame buffer of DDR3, through a 128-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 900MHz.


Features
DirectX 11.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for 3D Vision Surround, PhysX, Realtime Raytracing and other technologies.


Cooling Solution
The Cooling Solution consists of a Single-Fan.


Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 29W, it requires at least a 300W PSU and it relies entirely on the PCI Slot for power, meaning no extra connectors are required.


Performance
Gaming benchmarks put its performance considerably above Radeon HD 5450.


System Suggestions
We recommend a modest processor (Intel Celeron) and 4GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GT 520.

This card works relatively well playing the new Steam Early Access game The Forest on 1280x720 resolution with "fastest" Graphic option preset. (it's one option above the actual worst graphic setting, "Laptop") But I also have 20% overclock

I agree with Kalkucha above; GT 430 is far better. 4GB does not benefit the GT 520, VRAM is not significant for GT 520's performance ;)
