The GT 520 is probably a little faster than the GT 220. The Radeon HD 5450 is slower than the GT 520 and probably about equal to the GT 220.

If you can deal with a $10 mail-in rebate, then you can buy a Radeon HD 6570 for $50 after the rebate. It is basically equal to the Radeon HD 5670; you'll need benchmark numbers to see that it is just a tiny bit slower than the HD 5670.

Click the following review to see results of the HD 5670 to get a very close idea to how the HD 6570 will perform.

If you do not want to deal with a mail-in rebate, then the GT 520 would be your best bet. See following review for benchmarks.
