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

It may not be 100% accurate in some benchmarks but you will get the general idea.
