If you're not planning on much gaming, or at all, it's fine.

256MB XFX 7900GS XXX, PCI-E (x16), Mem 1600 MHz, GPU 600 MHz, 20 Pipes, Dual DVI/HDTV
would the above graphics card be any good? sits in my price range well? or any other cheaper alternatives?

^ thats a good for gaming.. but i thought since you were willing to get integrated graphics, you didn't need a good one... but a 7900gs is good, but an x1950xt is better!!
