Default graphics card specs

Im eyeing up a system that has ATI radeon 200 series integrated graphics, whats that like? rubbish, bad, not too bad, good, excellent? i have no idea.

If its not bad would i be able to play top games or am i having a laugh?
(only reason i say that is because of that word "integrated" normally when things are integrated there rubbish!?)

Integrated graphics is the technically correct way of saying onboard. And if you've been reading these forums, you'd know that onboard is terrible. You'd definetly want a graphics card if you want to play more modern games.

Exactly what i was thinking, thanks for the advice.

P.s the processor would be AMD athlon 64 3200, thats pretty good isnt it?

Yeah, that's the Athlon equilivent to my Opteron 146 I believe, and my 146 has been great for me.
