Albatron KM18G Socket A Motherboard
microATX, nVidia nForce2 chipset, 333Mhz FSB,
3x184pin DDR slots, 1xAGP 3xPCI 2xIDE ATA133 *2xUSB2
*integrated GeForce-4 MX Graphics *Integrated 6 Channel Audio *Integrated LAN

im kinda poor at the moment and was wondering at how the onboard graphics handled games n such, and whether it uses the ram in the pc??

supposedly quite good though I am not a fan of IGP's... :(

disable that if you can and just run your own video card :)

um... nm I just read the rest of your post... what card do you currently have...

depending on that it will be easier to describe the performance level of the product in question...

It's a good board, and it does share onboard RAM, but if you have a decent amount of RAM it doesn't really matter... anoher board with the IGP you could look at is the MSI K7N2G, it is a full ATX board, not a mATX like the Albatron.

sweet, albatron has an mATX nforce2 board.

the onboard graphics are comparable to a gf4mx (420?). but since it shares it's memory with the system, if you got 2 sticks (dual-ddr) of pc2700 or pc3200 and had all that memory bandwidth, that should directly increase your video performance.

can't say i've seen any reviews/benchmarks of the IGP to support this, though.
