    I'm interested in the MSI K7N2G motherboard as the basis of a new system I hope to build, and would be interested in any reviews,particularly around the onboard graphics which I have seen is just below a geforce4 mx440 spec.

    would this board with 2 x matched 256M 333 memory, be able to provide the graphics to play my boys games, they are into gaming and have XBOX etc, they also have PCgames.

    or must i get a graphics card and if so, which other motherboard should I get that does not have built in graphics?

    I have also looked at the MSI 865PE-Neo2 LISR2 but this combo is expensive and starts to put the system outside my budget

    You can get an MSI or ASUS motherboard for about $80~100 without onboard video. Then spend $75 for a Ti4200-64mb if you want to do some serious gaming.

    The onboard 3D video on the NForce2 will play 2001 games and older pretty good. The Ti4200 will allow your kids to play UT2003, Unreal2 and Half Life 2 fairly good... without a lot of money.

    The MSI is good... ASUS has a Nforce2 400 (non Ultra / dual RAM) for about $80.. very fast.

    The future of Computers next year is quite different... so I say - don't TRY to invest in the future... to do so means spending ~$500 on the CPU, $200 for the motherboard... but things will be different next year.

    An AMD 2500 and Mobo (About $170 together) should last you 1-2 years... till you want more speed.
