Default Graphic Questions

I was wondering if games like far cry and Half life 2 would work well enough to enjoy on the onboard graphics for the intel 915g chipset motherboard? if not, what kind of PCI-e 16x graphic cards are recommended on a 150 budget

Any On-Board video that is made by Intel... is just cr@p. So, you will need a better card than an Intel. Intel video cards are made for a business solution, more for a workspace. Check this link out:

The Sapphire Radeon X600 Pro is a video card that is not too bad.

Try to get x700 or 6600GT as they are low budget cards that will suit your gaming.

I dont want to know how many .fps you would get in farcry and hl2 with intergrated graphics
