This is where the hierarchy chart comes in handy.

The 6150 is on the same tier as the Intel GMA X3500(utter crap), while the 3450 is on the same tier as the HD 3200 IGP. It will be quite a bit more powerful than the integrated graphics, there is a 6 tier difference between the two.

The 6150SE in the chipset is just a slightly downclocked version of the 6150 so it will perform slightly worse but not enough that it would change tiers, the 3450 is still significantly better.

Also would it be enough to play Tom Clancy's HAWX?

All my other requirements meet. Graphics are the lowest.

The 3450 should be able to handle it at 1024x768 fairly well, and reasonably well at 1280x1024 at lowest detail settings, the 6150SE doesnt really stand a chance except at maybe 800x600
