this is eathier for a "SMALL SERVER" "LITE LITE GAMES" "or APPS Interet for LANS etc"

Even for lite gaming... the onboard 6100 really sucks, about on par with intel extreme graphics 2. at LEAST get a 6200, or a 6600le would be better. you cant go wrong with this 6600le:

it is heatsink only so it wont make any noise. and this should really be in the general pcs section.

Ok, honestly I didn't know any specs of the 6100, I just said screw it and I'll prolly go with a PCI-E card l8er, or stick my old 6600GT in it when I get the 7800GTX... I dunno yet man but yea that looks dec too ^
