Geforce 8600M vs. Intel HD on i5-430M

Hey guys & gals. I'm looking into a new laptop and have a quick question relating to graphics.

The new "Intel HD" that comes with the i5-430M processor, is it as good or better than my current Nvidia Geforce 8600M video card?

I'd be happy with anything equal to or better than my current card, but I wouldn't like a downgrade. I know generally an "integrated" card isn't so good, but I've read some positive reviews on the new HD from Intel so I'd like some opinions. Thanks
