Default Wanted: Integrated Video!

what are some great motherboards with integrated video, at least 32 megs? or are there any?

most of the motherboards i've been looking at either have no integrtated video or only 4-8 megs.

since a SUPER MODERATOR told me there's no way to rig a separate video card to the mobo without plugging it directly in, i need a mobo with integrated video.

i'm looking specifically for a dual opteron board, but i'm open minded.

thanks!

Post Best i can do

I can't direct you to one but why do you need this feature ?
A good plug and play AGP 128 is all you should need.

Most Opteron motherboards I've seen come with a fairly weak IGP (usually of the Trident Blade 3D variety, usually with 8-16 MB RAM installed), though the majority are intended as server boards - in that case, a good graphics processor needs not apply.

The only motherboard chipsets I know of with a good integrated graphics implementation:

- nForce IGP (NVIDIA GeForce2 MX-based, 32 MB, Athlon/Athlon XP platform)
- nForce2 IGP (NVIDIA GeForce4 MX-based, 64 MB, Athlon/Athlon XP platform)
- Radeon IGP (Radeon 7000-based, Pentium 4 platform)
- Radeon 9100 IGP (Radeon 9000/9200-based, Pentium 4 platform)

And of those the Radeon IGP's are the best, I believe
