The nvidia one out of those is better, and we cant just recommend you a motherboard without knowing what you want out of it and how much you wanna spend and what cpu you need it to fit.

Any reason you want an integrated card? You can get some cheap cards that by normal standards are crap but compared to an integrated are amazing.

Well, if you are considering a very low budget card:
Newegg.com - ECS N7600GS-256DY GeForce 7600GS 256MB 128-bit GDDR2 PCI Express x16 Video Card - Retail

Its better than an 8500GT and its around $50-60.
It will play most older games well such as Counterstrike and such.

Its only slightly better, since the 8500gt is comparable to the 7300gt, which was a slower 7600gs.

Also, you could go cheaper and do an amd build.

i m a intel fan so i have not taken AMD into account yet. maybe years later.
do you guys really think that a low end video card is worthy?
