I'd think so, yeah.

Though people think its also an effective soloution as they don't need to use up PCI, etc slots on these things they can get already on the board.

What they don't tend to know, is how bad the graphics/sound is with onboard.

I've seen someone in PC World standing in awe at a golf game on a cheap laptop, only for me to look at the graphics, and think they were made 10 years ago, and are running from a very bad onboard graphics chip.

Just goes to show how uneducated some people are in computing nowadays still...

I would never use onboard sound and video on a bet. On some of the computers I work on, I even switch NICs if the computer has a lower-standard motherboard. I more than likely put Gigabit NICs. I think if all these motherboard companies are going to put onboard sound and video on their motherboards, they should at least make it more comparable to dedicated PCI.
