The motherboard comes with 512MB of memory for the graphics processor. That memory is in addition to whatever memory one would put on the motherboard itself. These are nothing like the old intel motherboards with "integrated graphics." The new intel H55, H57 motherboards emulate the AMD series. The AMD 780g, 785g, and 790g motherboards are pretty sweet. The best is the 790g. The guys over at Gearslutz who use AMD really like'em. They give you great bang for your buck when building an AMD based DAW.
