BIOSTAR A68I-350 (APU) vs 9500GT

I'm building a mini ITX PC with the BIOSTAR A68I-350 with the 350 APU. I was looking around for a cheap graphics card (5670 maybe?)

Then I remembered I had an old 9500 in my 7 year old rig.

I'm looking to watch 1080p videos/shows and do some gaming. Which would be better....the APU or 9500gt?

I will be upgrading to a good dedicated card later on (Maybe a 550 ti of the such). But for now, should I use one of the above for some light gaming, or am I expecting too much from them?

    If I were you, then I would install the 9500 and then do some gaming/benchmarks and then take it out again and try again. Then just see which one is faster.

    The 9500GT has 32 cores at 550mhz, which isn't all that good... a 40$ gt610 can easily beat that with 48 cores at 800mhz. \

    Just looked up that the motherboard has a built in hd6310, which has 80 cores at 500mhz.

    Its a close call, but I think the integrated graphics might just beat it...

    It can play some older games.... but not really the newest of them.
