    if i want to buy this i will but it from here link because it cheaper (119&#036

    yes i noe tht intergrated vid uses memory (shared) so i am gona buy mayb 1gig of memory or jus 512ddr

    i noe tht 9200 is not tht good of a card but if i hav lots of good memory wont it run faster and better and dunt forget it also comes with a 8x agpslot


    ****ALL PRICES ARE CDN****

    also.. does it support overclocking?
    is it a good mobo?

    btw i hav been researching for the past hour or so...

    Asus makes descent boards, so I'm sure your mobo is alright.

    Also, it's much better to have seperate video and mobo, but unlike many here, I beleive, intergrated video is good. and if your not doing any high end gaming, just go with intergrated video, it's all you will ever need.

    So I say go for it, if you want to upgrade later when you have more money you can buy a top of the line vid card then.

    I dont know a TON about Intel mobos because Im AMD but THIS board looks goooood to me. Only $110 and has dual channel and other good features.

    DONT LISTEN TO BOB DO NOT GET INTERGRATED GRAPHICS! Your paying a bunch of money for something you cant even use!!!!!!!!!! Look at the one I showed you or simmilar ones.

    Make sure that the Ram has a pretty high speed rating. Like PC3200 or higher. You can prob get it up to around 2.2. Good luck with your new mobo. Im having great luck with mine.
