Nvidia GT420 or 520?

I'm having a hard time deciding which card to use. My Lenovo came with the 420 in it and I have a 520 that's in my parts bin. The 420 is an OEM device so I can't find has much info on it as I can on the 520. Basically i'm trying to decide which one I should put in the Lenovo. The Lenovo is a new 330 with the I5-2300. This is actually my 1st desktop and I am just not used to this hardware. I'm mostly a laptop man!
