Is the GeForce 8500 GT worse than integrated Intel HD 4000?

If I have a system that's composed of:
Asus P8Z77 - V LX2
Intel i5 3570K
8 GB ram DDR3 1600 CL9
750W PSU

Would the integrated graphics with the i5 be better than using a 8500 GT?

By 'better' I mean in terms of:
Video playback
3D modeling
Photo editing
Minor gaming

    According to Tom's Graphics Card Hierarchy Chart, it is on par with an 8600GT, however, you may gain features that the HD 4000 doesn't have such as OpenGL and Hardware T&L. Discrete graphics are usually always better than integrated. Here is a link to Tom's chart, you can look it over and decide for yourself. In my opinion, you probably wouldn't notice the difference either way.,3107-7.html
