now to testmy knowledge.. integrated means pretty the processor and graphics card are one. if this is not the case.. please let me know
with my definition there, wouldnt it be better to buy a graphics card ad processor seperate rather than to be a integrated graphics processor?
In the old days, integrated graphics are on the motherboard. Nowadays, they're on the same CPU package/die. Old integrated graphics are pretty crappy but new ones are actually pretty decent. Even Intel graphics isn't so bad in terms of performance, but the drivers leave a lot to be desired.
If you're planning on gaming, though, stick to discrete graphics cards.
