    The video is not on-board it is built into the APU(Accelerated Processing Unit)
    The built in video of the Llano APUs, even the dual core is not a bad video card 1080p is not much of a task for it, it is much better than the Intel 2nd gen Core CPUs built-in video, and it can also be overclocked.

    What memory and video card do you have?

Trust me if i have a $500 budget i would get a current amd fx6100 and a good 890fxa board. I have to buy memory, power supply, hard drive, cpu cooler, video card,cpu, motherboard, thats hard to do on $275

    I got a ati radeon 4670 1gb card, Ocz 500watt power supply, Cooler Master TX3 cpu cooler, 2 gigs of crucial ballistix ddr 2 800 cl4, western digital 160gb raptor hard drive. I can get the gigabyte 965p-ds3 rev 3.3 for $50 with all cables, I/0 shield, not a bad deal i think. I may get a lower core 2 duo and overclock it like you said. The e8400 is on the cpu support list on gigabytes site for that board, so the board will have to overclock to get the 1333 fsb ?, im a little confused ?

    I did find a e7400 core 2 duo on ebay 1066 fsb for$60 used, runs at 2.93, so i could push that baby up 3.2, 3.4 ghz and be good.
    P35-DS4 or DS3R is just as good as DQ6!! So if you can find one of those for cheap you'd be set

    Yes, to run 1333 FSB with 8400 and 965P you have to overclock, but you plan to do that anyway so no worries.

    I have a ati radeon hd 4670 1gb card with gddr3 on it, which should do just fine for video watching, and some light gaming. I do have one more question for you guys concering board revisions, the 965p Ds3 has up to a 3.3 revision. So i assuming getting the last revision is the best, i can get the 2.0 revision for really cheap, the 3.3 is more money.

    Wow, it's been so long I can't remember what the changes on that were, but yes as you expected newer is likely better but probably not worth paying a huge difference over.

    It has a different heatsink, different audio controller, and also added native support for 1333 FSB and Quad Core CPU's (Officially for both of those), and likely some other electrical changes under the hood somewhere too

    Sorry to bring this up again, im trying to buy my processor, its going to be a core 2 duo e6700 or 6750. The 6700 is 1066 fsb, the 6750 is 1333fsb. My questions is most all the 965p motherboards say they only support 1066 fsb, the Gigabyte 965p ds3 says it supports 1333. So my question is will motherboard just set the fsb 8x 333 automaticly, or will i have to overclock to get there. Im not sure what cpu to get between the 2 for better overclocking. Here is the link to the motherboard, it says it natively supports 1333fsb, is this true ? what chip do u think i should get ? Here is the link to the motherboard http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j...Mgq0vg&cad=rja

    It will probably set FSB to 333MHz for 333MHz CPU, but this is not the question.
    The E6700 has multiplier of 10, and to clock to 3.33GHz(if it can) it only needs 333MHz FSB while the E6750 will need 416MHz FSB (multiplier 8).
    What cooler are you going to use? I lost track.

    Im going to use like a Thermaltake 120, or something good and aftermarket. So if i want to push my fsb, i should get the 6750 core 2 duo ?

    I have seen images of E6700 at over 500MHz FSB (no idea how stable or true they are).
    And what if you cannot push your FSB? You'll be stuck with low OC.
    IMO it is better to have a CPU with 9.5 or higher multiplier, in case you cannot push the FSB.
    My E7500 handled 500+ MHz FSB without a problem, I'll try the E7200 later.
    How about E7300 to E7600?

    Yeah i could go with a 7300 or 7400. I think the board maxes out around 475 fsb from the reviews i have read, most of them were with a 6700.

    I'd vote for the E6700 or one of the E7x00s. E8400(E0) may be also good but it's more expensive, unless you can get one cheap.
