Hi Tony
I am using the nVidia 5200 as well (Just not on Linux), however a 
cautionary note to make sure the graphics chip has a fan on it.

They tend to get too hot.
Depends on which board you have as to if it has a Fan fitted.

I already melted one and it took the motherboard along with it.

My current replacement also did not have a fan so I have fitted one.
It runs at a reasonable temp now.  Rule of thumb - If you cannot hold on 
to the heatsink, then it is too hot.
