LOOOL, my bad for the laughter. But the best on board graphics is probably equivalent to 8400GS at best. The keyword here is at best meaning more then likely it performs more like a HD3200 or something along those lines.

Like some one said see if you can RMA it maybe add a few dollars and try getting a card thats equivalent or better then a 8600GT. Besides the 8500GT's aren't that far away from the 8600GT's (price wise).

I can play games like Oblivion fine. And for the time being that's all I need.
