Ahh, ok.  I admit I've not used the inbuilt video on recent Intel boards in
Windows for anything except normal 2D desktop apps, browsing, etc.  I've not
monkeyed with the Windows Aero or whatever they call it of Vista.  They seem
fine with 2D only stuff.  For any serious 3D apps (gaming) I always go with
an external GPU, usually nVidia.
