    Before you go and buy such a card; make sure that:

    1. You have the correct slot
    2. You have enough power

    These two are a definite must. I can not seem to find the specs of the motherboard supplied in the e520, but have you any idea which motherboard it is, and if it supports PCI e2.0 ?

    If you do not know your power specifications, please look in the thread in my signature and follow the power supply step :) .

    It might also be a wise idea to measure your case if you are worried about space needs ;) . Newegg lists the size LxWxT typically for their products.

    I have a 500w silencer, so the PSU isnt a problem. My problem is literally the physical dimensions of the card. I have PCIe x16, but I believe my heatsink will interfere due to its size. My next idea is possibly a PCIe riser?
