IS the Intel GMA X4500 HD any good for an home pc

Eg. movies, word, simple 2d gaming ( Bejeweled ) Just about anything my mother could torture it with...

I mean it does do what it does in an okay fashion right?

For an accelerator... Dam i hate them...

Anyways just light home use,
i've heard it lag's on HD videos is this correct?

  1. It should be fine for 2D games and HD video.

    Hmmm, if it's something you have already, it wouldn't be too bad.

    But, I would not build a new one. The RAM is DDR2, more expensive, older, and slower. Same for the CPUs on the old 775 socket, there becoming more and more rare.

    You could build a new Sandy Bridge with Intel integrated graphics. But, you'll find a AMD offers more for the money. CPU's aren't as fast as Sandy Bridge, but, mom won't need that speed and AMD integrated graphics have no issues with video & HD video.

    Something like this will be very, very, nice:

  3. +1 for the AMD or Sandybridge or even a Socket 1156 build
  4. even if does start to lag, you can always add one of them htpc cards. like the 5450 n such. you can find one for about like 40 bucks or so. but you shouldnt have any problem at all with videos and 2d gaming.
