Deciding between Onboard and cheap GPU Tags: Graphics Cards Graphics Last response: July 21, 2011 5:37 PM in Graphics & Displays Share Persheis July 21, 2011 5:00:53 PM Sup guys: I wanted to ask you if it would be better to use the onboard video from ASUS M4A89GTD PRO/USB3 or an old XFX 9400 GT 1GB card I have left from my last build. I'm planning to use the computer mostly for HD anime playback and some not-so-graphic-heavy games (FEAR 2 for example). CPU: AMD Phenom II 1100T x6 RAM: 2*4GB Ripjaws 1333 Thanks!
