In short

Dispose() is called by as an indication for an object to release any unmanaged resources it has held. Dispose() operates determinalistically due to which it is generally preferred.

Finalize() is used for the same purpose as dispose however finalize doesn't assure the garbage collection of an object.

Hope this helps
