For a media center, I would suggest going with an nvidia 540 or 550Ti. The 520 is going to have the absolute most basic quality features, and doesn't have enough power to apply any amount of real time correction. The 550Ti will support all of the image quality features, and has enough power to use them all. The Nvidia cards also support 3d video on just about any 3dtv. AMD supports 3d on their 6000 series cards, but includes nothing to make it work.
"There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.'" -- Isaac Asimov
