Not really, it's a business graphics card designed for multi display systems, it's not really designed for gaming at all.

This comparison to a GT610 (a pretty low end card) says it all if you ask me.

Even a Radeon 6750 is a good deal faster for £50 but of course lacks the level multi monitor support that the NVS will offer in office based tasks.
You can tell it's a low end card because of the 192 stream processors and the DDR3 memory. Entry level gaming cards have at least 500 stream processors/cores/pipelines and use GDDR5 memory.

@Astec123: Your second link is for the mobile version, a completely different and significantly older model than the one in question. This NVS 510 desktop is a very similar card to the GT 630 (it's the same chip and the same memory bandwidth, nVidia doesn't seem to have published clock speeds).

I wouldn't recommend it if gaming was a priority, it has a small amount of poke but it will struggle with some games even at lowest settings. If the software you're buying a Quadro card for allows you to select which card it's using then perhaps buying a seperate card for gaming would be the way to go.
