So I've looked around and can't seem to find benchmarks that can tell me what I want, nor any forum posts. Will the integrated Graphics on a 780G board (or any others for that matter, G31?) be faster or slower than my ATI 9800 Pro in an AGP slot.

THe intergrated graphics on AMD chipset boards isnt all that bad to be honest, great for HTPC's and I guess decent for low level gaming. I think the 780G has intergrared HD 3200 but dont quote me on that. Im preety sure it can top the 9800pro considering that card is about 5 years old.

The 780G may be the newest integrated graphics but I don't think the best integrated graphics can beat the weakest graphics card within the last decade.

pcgamer12 is dead-wrong, vastly underestimating how weak graphics cards can get... Even Intel's GMA 900 was capable of, for instance, going close to neck-and-neck with the GeForce FX 5200.

In the case of the Radeon HD 3200 in the 780G chipset, it DOES feature a lot more complexity than most GPUs of only a few years back, and includes 40 stream processors at a full 500MHz. The benchmarks show that, save for one result, it consistently falls to 80-90% of the performance of the HD 3450, well above the likes of the Radeon X1300. Which, I believe, would put it a bit over the Radeon 9800pro.
