Intel 2000/3000 IGP for non gaming

I'm going to be building a home/office computer for myself in the next couple days and I had a question. How is the Intel HD 2000/3000 integrated graphics for non gaming. What I mean is is it good enough for office work web surfing and sometimes YouTube video's? Or would I be better off getting a cheap ($50-$60) discreet video card?

  3. Would there be any real difference between the 2000 and 3000 graphics? When watching video's would I get a better picture with the 3000 graphics or would it be about the same?
  4. The Intel® HD 2000 Graphics has 6 EUs (Execution Units) and the Intel HD 3000 has 12 EUs but this shouldnt affect watching a video at all.

  5. Some HD encodings are hard on the HD2000 I think but generally it shouldn't be a problem.
