Here is the power requirement of the GT 520 according to the NVIDIA website:
Thermal and Power Specs:
102Maximum GPU Temperature (in C)
29 WMaximum Graphics Card Power (W)
300 WMinimum System Power Requirement (W)
Thus, even a 400W branded PSU would be good enough for it, but indeed getting at least a 500W branded PSU is a wise move since you'll gonna have ample power for future upgrades and your PSU wouldn't be put into much stress since it is more than enough.
But if I may, for the same price range, you can get this card instead which is much faster than the GT 520:
XFX HD-657X-ZHF2 Radeon HD 6570 1GB 128-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card - $65 ($45 after rebate)

A 500W PSU is more the enough and will do fine. I recommend the Antec HCG-520w PSU. Good Value.Source(s): I build computers
