With all due respect to powerless, his link is to the old Via 266 and the old nForce 420 booards from 2001

My link is to the latest nForce 2 chipset boards.

To my knowledge none have integrated Graphics, all have intergrated sound though.

They all support USB2, firewire, LAN (onboard) and (I think) DDR400

April's Computer Buyer reviews several PCs based on the Nvidia board with integrated video. Makes interesting reading, particularly regarding the contrasting performance of one ram strip vs two matched strips.

There is a version of the Asus a7n8x that you can get from that has integrated graphics, best to get the Delux version from here

Quote from Toms Hardware

"There are four different chipset combinations, as nVIDIA offers two north bridge and two south bridge chips. The two north bridges both include the fancy memory interface, and differ by only one feature: the IGP (Integrated Graphics Processor) comes with a powerful, integrated graphics engine that matches a GeForce4 MX 440. Performance users should go for the SPP (System Platform Processor), which does not include graphics and requires an AGP graphics card.

I already mentioned the two south bridge chips MCP and MCP-T. The T-version includes nVIDIA's APU (Audio Processing Unit), and is your first choice if you value sound and Firewire. The simpler version only has one network controller, instead of the MCP-T's twin interface".
