Re: Lenovo H520s Video Card

hi strike0fluck,

 

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.

Re: Lenovo H520s Video Card

hi astra610s,

 

The Zotac GT520's minimum PSU Wattage is 300-Watt (I recommend you get a quality 350W or 400W TFX PSU).

 

Did you replace your PSU to this specification?

 

 

Cheers

Re: Lenovo H520s Video Card

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.

Re: Lenovo H520s Video Card

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.

Re: Lenovo H520s Video Card

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.

Re: Lenovo H520s Video Card

Hi all, I'm not looking for a video card for games....I just need to run 2 monitors. My current card that came with my H520 only has one monitor slot.... I would prefer not to change the power supply if possible. What would you suggest?
