Re: $550 Build w/ Monitor (PLEASE CRITIQUE)
Well, it is always good to have a card installed if you ever do want to play a game, imo. But I do agree. Onboard is not that bad. And heck, most every one I know buys there pc's from dell and don't really know the difference between onboard and dedicated graphics and they get by fine. But, as you can see, I did add a cheapy card to the list.
Single-core AMD Athlon 64 3800+ (UC'd to 1.06 GHZ)
256MB 667MHz DDR2 - Nvidia GeForce 6150SE (integrated)
20GB 4800rpm IDE - Eight channel (7.1) Audio
Windows ME... and Playing Crysis at 1 fps
