9500GT vs GT520
So.. GT520 1GB GDDR3 or a 9500GT 1GB DDR2?And how much better is the better one ? XD

I think performance-wise, the 520 would be a bit better. Design wise, the 520 is significantly better.

DDR2 Vram is a thing of the past and is only installed on the very bottom tier card's so that 9500gt is'nt even worth comparing with a card that
has gddr3.

That's not entirely true. Memory bandwidth is not the limiting factor on these lower level cards. The 9500gt is actually capable of higher memory bandwidth than the GTX520.

So basically it's not worthy of an update?

I would hold out for a 550 or 560 is possible. Your cpu should also be a factor in that decision.

The GT 500 series is still being fleshed out somewhat as many models are not yet widely available in the channel.

The GT 520 is the bottom of the line, the 530 and 540 are OEM and you might find one with an eTailer if you look around.

If you want to play games the the GTX 560 Ti is not that expensive and its very popular.
