Well, I went to the Others and saw a weird message. I don't know if it's my screen or graphics card. Maybe the APU on my CPU. So I thought I'd start here.

You can have a look here:
Link1

And then here:
Link2

Should I upgrade?
 
You have been badly informed, probably you were distracted by the cute agents of evil that MS dispatch to various mega store outlets under the guise of 'laptop hunting'. Those hussys might as well have William Tell playing from their ZuneHD's as they will do anything to ensure that informed consumers like yourself end up with their masters inferior wares.

It might be the case. I will try Apple. I see it's in a lot of movies / live shows etc. these days.

Is it true Apple ONLY support Nvidia due to superior render capabilities?

Vok, everyone knows intel make the best stuff around, even their last generation gpu's run rings around anyone else, stick to them.

You will hear tons of noobs here who say you need a dedicated card but come on, they are posting on toms forums, that tells you all you need to know, doesn't it.

Yes. Yes it does. Does integrated come with ext molex power? My PSU is only 150W so I'm a wee bit concerned that it might draw my 9V rail to oblivion. If I buy a 160W PSU, will my FPS be better?

Well actually, it was real flames at some point. When I still had my 386SX, it had a turbo button. So when I pushed it, flames would come out and it's the burn marks that now remain looking like flames.

Speaking of which. I read that Nvidia showed off a fake card at a recent PR event? Is this true? Aren't they able to compete with Intel*?

*I don't see any competition between AMD and Nvidia and I recon Nvidia's main competitor is Intel. Next year the situation might change of course, and we might see Nvidia competing with Voodoo or something.
