If it is any help to you I have recently bought a new PC which was made
to my specification and cost around £300 mark. Graphics and sound are on
the motherboard and I have no trouble in running 06.10. If you want to
use video cards then they would automatically supersede the on board
graphics but may cause you problems in setting them up.
