Do you know which chipset?

Most newish chipset graphics are definately not rubbish - although the very latest and greatest graphics technology is to be found on plug-in graphics boards.

As always, you gets what you pay for - graphics chipsets (ie on-board graphics) are an economical way or providing decent performance. If you want to run the latest state-of-the-art games, they won't perform well - if not they're absolutely fine (and you haven't spent a fortune to get them.)
