The nVidia GeForce 6100 video card chipset. It's normally found integrated on motherboards.

yea, one of those s about 512mb of cheap DDR and a socket 754 sempron 2800+ (about $30 on newegg i might add) and you could have a decent low end machine if you're not going to game or are going to play RATHER OLD games

If you guys would pay more attention, you would see that the system is not for him, and theres only a budget of $150 availible. Plus my post already helped, i dont see a better system being built for the same price.

Yeah it's not for me. It's for a friend, and she's into light gaming (think Zoo Tycoon 2).

Rican, the motherboard you linked me to got deleted off newegg or something. Can you link me again if it's still on there?

COD2, what's a good mobo with integrated 6100? Also is a Geforce 6100 enough to run Zoo Tycoon 2 well?
