    Does anybody know of a image or a short clip of a comparison between an integrated graphics card and a graphics card by itself.I think it is called dedicated graphics card

    A dedicated graphics card

    For Example ATi X800 etc..

    You'd struggle to get any meaningful information from a comparison of one card vs one integrated because of the enormous range of card performances and types.
    Bugger the cancer. I'm suffering from terminal inertia.

    tom hardware had a test on intergrated gpu ages ago.

    basicly intergrated is almost always the bottom spec chips. designed for basic use (not gaming!)

    sometimes you can get onboard graphics thats actually a fairly topend model but they are rare.
    Tweak it till it breaks

    what for? comparison for purchase between a low end dedicated and integrated or what?

    as a general rule of thumb, integrated is useless.

    often a google search of the the two models of interest and maybe the word "benchmark" will yield fruitful results
    When it comes to computers there is a difference to what you need and what you want, the former being less than half the price of the latter.

    An $80 low end card will beat most integrated video chipsets.

    Dedicated
    -Dedicated and singled out (performs by itself)
    -Has it's own dedicated video RAM
    -Alot more powerful in comparison due to being singled out
    -Cheap low end cards more powerful than most integrated

    Integrated
    -RAM hogging (sometimes uses system RAM)
    -Very tiny and powerless due to being small and mounted
    -Used to save LOTS of money
    Thermaltake Litepower 600W
    Frontier Formers FO09A
    ASRock N68-S3 UCC
    Nvidia 8800GTS 320MB (G80)
    AMD Phenom II X4 B50 3.2Ghz
    Seagate Barracuda 7200.12
    Team EliteGroup 4GB 1333MHz DDR3
    Lite-On IHAS324

    What used to be believed is not necessarily true with the latest motherboards.
    I have just assembled a Vista Aero machine using 1 GB of integrated video [800MHz DDR2 dual channel] that knocks the socks of a machine I assembled 3 months ago that has a fairly costly PCI Express card that glitches, every now and then, on start-up.
