The 520, but only slightly. If you are going for a cheap laptop with decent graphics, try AMD.

don't buy those if you want gaming performance.

Try getting an AMD laptop with and A6 or A8 APU

Oh both will run those games without ANY problems, they aren't graphically intensive at all. Usually when people ask if a graphics card will run a game, they ask about the new shiny games, like battlefield 3 or skyrim :)  Also, GT520m is more powerful of the two.

You'd want at least GT540m. Fast processor helps as well, i5 2xxx should be enough!

you can probably play skyrim with a i3 or i5 with at least a geforce 540m or radeon 6550.

Or you can get an A8 fusion APU.
