hello there. building a new low cost pc for my aunt and i selected this board gigabyte GA-78LMT-S2P with onboard radeon hd 3000 graphics. she basically plays facebook games and watches videos and what not, nothing demanding by any means. do you think the onboard 3000 will be ok for what she needs it for?if not is there a cheap card out there thats better in performance but light on the wallet? FX 4100 Black Edition 3.6GHz is the cpu i chose in the bundle, 90 dollars together. thanks for your help.
Yes its more than enough. The IGPs have come a long way from years ago its kind of crazy. While they're not on a level of a decent mid-range card their performance is pretty damn good if you game on 720p. My neighbor plays Wow and LOTRO with his HD3000 and it runs surprisingly good. You can also run left 4 dead and a couple of other games with great performance, so web browser games shouldn't be a problem.
