    I saw the benchmarks here and they spoke by themselves.

    Saw the ones on Anandtech and I couldn't agree more:

    On the GT 520 and HD 6450:

    Doesn't convince me yet. Intel GMA X3500 supports DirectX 10 yet you won't play Crysis with it. Does it matter that the codec support is optimized when the hardware itself is slower? I feel that any...

    Please stop recommending SNB graphics

    Especially HD Graphics 2000, they're just not suited for gaming, and proper support in Ubuntu (like it or not, it's the most popular distro) hasn't come yet.

    If VDPAU is a big issue, I don't see why a GT 520 is still a good buy when the GT 430 exists in the same factor and price.

    The GT 440 may be faster, but since it is a GDDR3 variant, things may get blurry performance wise. How much money are talking about? I'm sure you can get a better card for that price.

    The three cards mentioned are around the same price as the GT 520 and are available as half height cards, am I missing something? The HD 6450 is cheaper than the GT 520 yet it has a superior...

    The GT 520 just shows Nvidia is unwilling and incapable to top AMD in the low end. That 64 bit memory bus is joke, a bad one if you ask.

    If you're exclusively looking for a low profile card, the...

    Well, though software compiling isn't an excessively hard thing by itself, why would you want to do that on drivers? There are official repositories on Launchpad that provide updated and bleeding...

    The 550 is clearly superior to the 440. The 440 (the retail variant, not the OEM one) is just an overclocked 430, which is known to lag behind the 240. In AMD terms, the 440 should be on par with the...

    The experience with the GTS 250 has been fantastical, with the HD Graphics 2000, Minecraft was running at 20 fps at most and with an awful antialiasing glitch we couldn't fix. The GTS 250 gives at...

    We got the GTS 250, we got an used one here so it could cost only $75 (importing it would cost us about $99). Natty bugs aside (like Jockey not reporting the proprietary driver is in use), the card...

    I don't care about using three monitors, I already stated that I wanted to use this card with a 17" 1280x1024 D-Sub monitor, and nothing more.

    GPGPU uses are irrelevant at the moment, and buying a...

    Sadly, the HD 5670 (1 GB DDR3) is nowhere to be found here now, they run out of them and the GDDR5 version is just out of our budget :(

    We're considering importing it from the US, but there are...

    I only see that GPU video acceleration will be imporant under very heavy multitasking. Usually the CPU is powerful enough to manage video streams without a serious impact on the system perormance.

    I've found the HD 5670 at a very reasonable price, even cheaper than the HD 4670, the former at just 75 bucks, the latter around 90. I'm seriously considering the HD5670 for my friend's PC, but I've...

    I understand our point, but it also seems that it shifts from the original scope of having a card that works without issues in Ubuntu.
