Can this Integrated INTEL Gfx HD 3000 Beat This "Discrete Class" AMD Card?
AMD Radeon HD 6520G Discrete-Class Graphics with up to 2037MB total graphics memory
Intel HD Graphics 3000
The INTEL is matched with a Sandy Bridges Core i7-2630 quad-core which is a trimmed down version of the 2600. (The proc as I understand is important with this gfx solution.)
PS. What the heck is "discrete class" anyhow? I was almost fooled.

Discreet class is technically an add in card, the AMD's have an "Discreet" based chip on the CPU, unlike intels which is similar to typical "onboard" video.
IMO, their all onboard, since their still on the CPU and through the motherboard, unlike a Dedicated Video card.
as to which is better, the AMD thoroughly beats the Intels any day.
Though AMD's CPU's can't match Intel's CPU's. But then again, for everyday tasks and low to moderate grade gaming (using the CPU's graphics), the AMD's are the best all around CPU's for this purpose.i7 940//Corsair H60//EVGA X58 SLI LE//6GB Corsair Vengeance 1600MHz//2x EVGA GTX 560 Ti FPB SLI//NZXT Hale82 850W//CM 690 II Advanced//Win7 64//WD 74GB V-raptor, 750GB Black, 1.5TB Green
