I recommend you use good quality 350W or 400W TFX PSU if you're gonna play games that requires full utilization of the GPU)/
I used this website to calculate the PSU usage of the Lenovo H520s running with an i5-2320, and 5400 RPM HDD. Regular 2 sticks of desktop RAM, and an Nvidia GeForce GT 620 1GB.
Here's the reuslt:
Hope this helps.

I just tried to install a Zotac GT520 into PCI-E slot
Dont seem to be able to get it to work
tried BIOS video setting in all 3 options
Windows 8 does not see new video card
nvidia says no graphics card installed

I have the H520s and went through some of this. Hopefully I can provide some useful insight.
Graphics card has to be a low profile model. The longest the graphics card can be is 7" in length.
Some good Graphics cards from best to worst:
AFOX AMD 7850 Low Profile
AFOX HD 6850 Low Profile Japanese Version
Sapphire HD 7750 Low Profile.
For any of those listed I would go with the 400 watt PSU. TFX form factor.

I'm currently running a saphire hd 7750 Low Profile and a 400 watt psu. No issues. Hooked up to a tv, looks great.
Sapphire doesnt need a separate psu connection so probably could go a little lower wattage on the psu.

Hi I have the same problem, just tried to install a EVGA Nvidia GT610 and nothing just a blank screen. I upgraded the power supply to a Be Quiet 300watt PSU. And nothing. I was wondering if you'd found a solution.

yeah sooo I bought a new graphics card the other day a geforce gt 610 and I have a h520s and the metal end of the card (with the outputs) is too long to even allow me to plug it in to the pci-e slot
Please help because these integrated graphics arn't cutting it
thanks in advance.
