Best answer as chosen by user slow235comp: So far, no onboard GMA for gamers.

If the sheer numbers of folk that wanted to play games on GMA video is not enough to dissuade you from such a decision then it's very good news for computer sales in the next year.

From your post it appears you have talked yourself into the GMA will be fine.

I wouldn't buy that if I wanted to play the newer games.
