My motherboard has some kind of integrated graphics, probably intel.  Seeing's how I have the 690, I don't have a whole lot of use for the integrated.  My hope is that someday GPUs will reach the level of soundcards where even most gamers are fine with the onboard sound, but integrated graphics has quite a ways to go before it gets close.

The nice thing about having an integrated graphics card as well as a dedicated one, is that if the dedicated ever craps out on you your computer isn't fully out of commission.  You can still boot up and use your computer, back things up, and do light weight computing/gaming while waiting for a new graphics card.

For a few extra dollars, I would definitely always consider getting a motherboard with integrated graphics just to have it as a fallback option.

As for me, I used to use an Intel GMA945 until last year, which is when I upgraded to an Intel HD3000.  My tower has a Radeon HD 6770, but I use that computer more for art and processing than I do game design.

In Australia a 8 core CPU (Intel Xeon E5 2650) is wroth $1295 and it is reduced to clear on the site I use to buy parts.

I think you have been lied to / misread the CPU, especially seeing as a 7670m is for laptops, I don't think you will ever find a laptop with a Xeon CPU in it.

He's probably referring to the 8 "logical cores" you get from hyperthreading on the four physical cores, common to all i7's these days.

GeForce GT545

Can't upgrade it, my power supply is minimum, motherboard is minimum and case is minimum, so if I want to buy a new graphics card I can better just build a whole new PC.
But my current CPU (and harddisk) will be in that new pc too, an i7-2600K...

At least you have a computer right now. Certain reasons why I don't, and it sucks because I haven't touched a piece of code in about 6 months!

Meanwhile in the streets there are kids growing up with guns. Be glad you have a laptop Smiley
(Also, that low power GPU probably helps your programming efficiency)

Jk, Jk.
Yeah, true. I get to know if it runs on machines similar to mine. Then again, it doesn't help with gaming. Trust me, I play a lot of games, and it plain sucks to have to make sure that my laptop doesn't overheat, even with a  cooling pad...
Right now, I am saving up to build gaming computer though.

I agree with your last sentence but I spent several weeks in finding a workaround to support this crappy chip in Ardor3D. I prefer having an obsolete graphics card but with a better driver (ATI Radeon 9250 Pro, Xorg open source driver).
