I have a Radeon 7000 made by Sapphire with 64MB of ram.. Now this new motherboard I'm getting shares 32MB of ram and has the S3 Prosavage 8 Integrated on the motherboard. Which will be better do you guys think? I know that the Radeon has its own memory but performance wise... Thanks guys and gals..

I don't trust integrated graphics if you want to play games, sharing memory banding hurts performance. So my vote goes for Radeon 7000 ... but I strongly recommend to do a couple of test with both configs with what you usually play. Then you having evidence so you can decide.

First of all, your chipset is crap. Second of all, the onboard video is much worse. I'm talking 1997 grade crap. Very sloppy. As weak as the 7000 is, I can't imagine it could possibly be slower than your integrated video.

I wasn't trying to say the chipset came out in 1997, I was just stating that the onboard video processor is 1997 technology, give or take a year, and even then it was considered a marginal solution.
