|Not two graphics cards at the moment. I can't say I wouldn't want to run 2 in the future, just not anytime soon.|
I don't need a ton of sata ports. I generally run only 1 or 2 hard drives, along with at most, 2 optical drives. 4 total. Most modern motherboards come with a whole bunch anyway, right?
Well, I've considered integrated graphics. I know some of the new amd/ati offerings are not bad performers. My dad built a phenom II X4 system earlier this year based on the 790GX northbridge. I'm pretty sure it has an ati 3300 igp.
Older games ran pretty well, however, newer titles not so much. He eventually upgraded to a 4850 512MB. I still want an actual video card solution though, especially for today's games, which I cannot play currently because of my dated hardware.
I've seen some of the new boards sporting the ATI 4200 IGP.
As you can see from the link below, that particular solution ranks pretty low on the hierarchy chart.
BTW, what is so bad about the 790X anyway?
