Integrated graphics chips are generally a poor substitute for having a dedicated graphics card.  If your machine has a graphics card, then, be sure that you use its own software to activate the card while you are in SL.  Otherwise, the machine will default to the integrated chip.  If you have only the HD 520 chip, don't expect more than medium quality graphics, regardless of which viewer you use.  If you try and push it to get higher performance, you may risk serious overheating and permanent damage.  Download a free temperature monitor from the Internet -- there' a broad selection out there -- and pay attention to it.

It would be best to go with a dedicated graphics card. Currently you can get a Nvidia GTX 1050 anywhere from $99.99 to $129.99  It'd work with a stock 300 watt power supply too. The integrated HD 520 graphics would work fairly poorly if at all.
