I need some info about this integrated gf4 mx thats on the 8RGA+ mobo, how good is it ?, and will there come mobos from epox with better video card in the future ? or does it getting to warm to make a video card onboard ?
Please write all what you think :)

its gonna be about the same performance as their bottom line GPU or the Intel extreme integrated . there are ECS boards with a real xabre GPU and dedicated memeory on them , and the new generation of ATI and Nvidia chipsets will have better graphics

It p****s all over intel extreme.

ITs good enough to play games on, even modern ones.

If you have two sticks of 2700 then you will get 5-6000 3dmarks.

Overclocked you can get over 7000 with a decent CPU.

The northbridge dosent get particually warm even when playing games.

Its not going to break any records but its a very good integrated solution for the money.

Its quite good, but i had problems with it due no-name RAMs.
2 sticks of Kingston PC3000 and it works fine.

two sticks of 256mb kingston hyperx3000 gets me 5160 3dmarks under 98se and dx8.1. thats a 2ghz cpu, 200fsb, ddr400 7-3-3-2.5 and 1.8Vdd. the memory refuses to do cas2 at the moment but that may be because of the graphics abusing the hyperx.
besides 1.8Vdd the 8RGA+1.1 also needed a northbridge cooler to loop 3dmark at 200fsb dual channel sync.
