6450 or 520

I need a cheap low power graphics card. I have narrowed my choices down to these to cards.

Memory :1024 MB DDR3 (64 bits)
Memory Clockspeed :535 MHz

Radeon HD 6450
Bus Interface: PCI-E x16 (PCI-E 2.1)

I know they are both pretty weak cards but which one would be the better of the two? How much more powerful is one from the other?
