I hear that AMD virtualization support is much better than in Intel chips, so you may want to research that (I don't run virtual machines so I can't say).
For the IGP, here are a few old reviews on performance:

thanks for those.

But I don't intend to do heavy gaming. I am just another of those old fashioned counter strike vetrans who can't game much due to studies.

The other thing I am worried about is workstation performance. I am an Ubuntu Studio abuser, and I do lots of multimedia production related activities, mainly making music and using the PC as an effects box and/or recording studio for my Guitar. Will the onboard components be good enough for such activities ?

Edit: I am impressed. 7050 indeed looks good. There is now an 80% chance that I will stick with intel.

any heating issues with 610i chipset ? I can only use stock cooling, and perhaps add an extra fan.
I intend to drive E2160 to a maximum of 3.0GHz, where its expected to be stable.

If you are going to overclock the E2160 you might want to look at the configurations they have here http://www.overclock.net/intel-cpus/...on-thread.html
