Summary

Reasons to consider Radeon HD 8470D IGP

Based on an outdated architecture (ATI TeraScale), there are no performance optimizations for current games and applications.

Reasons to consider GeForce GT 720

46 watts lower power draw. This might be a strong point if your current power supply is not enough to handle the Radeon HD 8470D IGP .
This is a much newer product, it might have better long term support.
Supports PhysX.
Supports G-Sync.
Supports ShadowPlay (allows game streaming/recording with minimum performance penalty).
Based on an outdated architecture (Nvidia Kepler), there are less performance optimizations for current games and applications.
