OK so i have the option of getting either a i5 -430m processor or i5-520m processor on a new laptop the price will be basically the same for either choice, but i would like to know what the actual differences are and how they would effect the laptop's performance before i decide.

The Core i5 520M would be a bit faster as it will Turbo Boost up to 2.93 GHz when you need the power, while the Core i5 430M will only Turbo Boost up to 2.53 GHz.
