onboard video means that your motherboard has a video chip and output already and it's not necessary, alas recommended, to install a video card.

onboard video is not really equal to any card, and tends to be bad quality...cards such as the Radeon and GeForce are "graphics accelerators" and are worth the money if you use your computer for gaming

whenever something is called "onboard" or "interated" it means it is built into the motherboard. this means you cannot take it out like a card. you can still disable it to use a expansion card instead.
