Intel chipset boards for pentiums almost always use an intel graphics
chipset. On amd based boards, it varies greatly what you get. I would
assume an nforce chipset with onboard would probably use a nvidia
chipsest. Via and sis boards are bound to have different video
chipsets. Short answer: it depends on the motherboard.
I bought an asus board without onboard video for this reason and got a
lowend nvidia agp card to throw in since i knew it was supported by
nvidia's drivers. (nforce 2 motherboard chipset) That worked out
One other thing to consider is online shopping. My local computer
store has a barebones for $250 but i can build the same system using
newegg.com for $200 with better parts. (i.e. asus board, name brand
ram, etc) I saw a case on there for 25 bucks the other day. Locally
the cheapest cases are 45 (both with power supply). I'm sure there are
other sites too.
