8600GTS wins by a ton, the 4500 cannot handle games at anything but the lowest settings, intel IGPs are pretty low level, just about any dedicated card will beat them and the 8600GTS was a decent card once so its a ton better.

You can not compare them. One is for movies and the other can handle games :)  .
8600 GTS 256 MB is far more powerful.

The 8600 GTS is well and truly better. It's a discrete card which means it uses all of its own resources(which it has alot more of than a integrated graphics solution)

If you don't mind specifying your computer stats and your price point I'd be happy to find you the best suited deal for your needs.

Oh, and screen resolutions and the games you intend to play...
