Zotac is gearing up to release their GeForce GT 520 which promises to provide a lot of modern graphics power to small form computers and HTPC. The new Geforce 520 from Zotac is everything you can want from an entry level GPU and more, not to mention the inclusion of a Zotac software bundle to take full advantage of its Nvidia Cuda technology. This can accelerate the productivity of your computer in areas such as web browsing and hi-res photo editing. No need to hunt down software with Cuda support because it comes right in the box.
