There is a LOT of discussion on the internet about this topic, and since the integrated GPU's are getting better and better, it may not matter. Discrete graphics increase power usage when running on battery.
If I were you, I'd do an online chat with Adobe and see if they'll venture an opinion. I doubt they'll do a firm recommendation, but you may be able to get a sense from them.

Tested video cards for Photoshop CS6
Adobe tested the following video cards before the release of Photoshop CS6. This document lists the video card by series. The minimum amount of RAM supported on video cards for Photoshop CS6 is 256 MB.
Note: Adobe tested laptop and desktop versions of the following cards. Be sure to download the latest driver for your specific model. (Laptop and desktop versions have slightly different names.)
nVidia GeForce 8000, 9000, 100, 200, 300, 400, 500 series
nVidia Quadro 400, 600, 2000, 4000 (Mac & Win), CX, 5000, 6000
AMD/ATI Radeon 2000, 3000, 4000, 5000, 6000, 7000 series
AMD/ATI FirePro 3800, 4800, 5800, 7800, 8800, 9800, 3900, 4900, 5900, 7900
Intel Intel HD Graphics, Intel HD Graphics P3000, Intel HD Graphics P4000
Note: ATI X1000 series and nVidia 7000 series cards are no longer being tested and are not officially supported in Photoshop CS6, but some basic GL functionality can be available for both these cards.
My Gallery I scrap with Photoshop CS6, but can help with older versions: PS7, CS2 & CS4.
