I need to know how good the onboard graphics are on a GigaByte GA-965G-DS3 Motherboard.


When I get my computer built I'm going to have with onboard graphics and sound for a while so I'm just wondering what I'm going to be stuck with.

Intel's current drivers for G965 chipset doesn't fully implement all the hardware features of the GPU. Usually you have all the features enabled for the product, but they are facing serious delays for it. The one featured on Xbitlabs is 14.25. The latest is 14.25.5. Every driver updates seem to bring substantial improvements in compatibility/stability/performance, which means there is a lot of work to be completed on the drivers.
