Also Solid: ATI's Radeon 9100 IGP

Another chipset we've expressed appreciation for is ATI's Radeon 9100 IGP, which is another excellent chipset. It supports all the latest technologies—dual-channel DDR400, 800MHz FSB, AGP 8x, Hyper-Threading—and also boasts an integrated graphics core.

Hardcore gamers and true performance enthusiasts will want to buy an add-in graphics card, but if your budget is tight, the 9100 IGP offers the best integrated graphics core of any chipset on the market. It's also the only chipset with integrated graphics to offer programmable shader support (which you'll need if you want to see next generation games like Doom3 and Half-Life 2 in all their glory).
