The HD 6450 is marginally faster than the GT 520 in most things,

ZOTAC GeForce GT 520 1 GB Review - Page 1/27 | techPowerUp

comes down to which is cheaper for the most part as neither will play today's games at much beyond low or medium and lower resolutions.

It won't win any awards, but unless you can increase the budget It's about as good as it gets....Any bigger card will involve a Power supply upgrade as well....

don't get 5450 to low end it plays them ok but go with a differnt card because a 5450 aint really for gaming,
EDIT:
i would go aleast with a HD 5570 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814131342

runs new games decently and cost only around 60usd
and only needs a 400watt psu


Here look some gameplay with that card runs ok ,good bang for the buck
