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

Bandwidth :8.56 GB/s

Ramdac :400 MHz

Bus :PCI-Express 2.0

Cooling :Fan


Radeon HD 6450

Bus Interface: PCI-E x16 (PCI-E 2.1)

Memory: 512MB / 64-bit DDR3

Clock Speed: 625MHz Eclk / Effective 1334MHz Mclk

Eyefinity Support: No

Hyper Memory: No

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?
