I am taking the advice given here and building my own PC. Is it better to have an Intergrated Video Card?

I personally wud steer clear of integrated grafs, and have a separate gfx card, especially if u want to 'game' on the new machine.

If you simply use your computer for ordinary emailing, surfing, word-processing, etc. then intergated graphics should be adequate.

But, as Marko797 says, if you plan to play graphics-based games, or use any graphics-intensive software, a good graphics card would perform much better.
