Default Video Card Needed?

i don't play computer games, but i'm on my computer a good bit, and i've always used integrated video cards or some cheap ati video card. is it worth upgrading my video card if i dn't play computer games, or is a standard video card good enough.

Unless you're using a lot of graphics stuff or watching lots of movies on your PC, don't bother.

Don't bother if you have a cheap 9200SE or something for your computer.
