It'd actually be great for budget gaming too. I bought a 780G mobo for my sister and she can play source games (CSS, TFC, L4D) at around 30fps on her 1280x1024 monitor.

Definitely a plus for HTPC's and mild gamin. WoW addicts won't have to get a discrete card for max settings. Or could the 3200 max it out before? Haven't played wow in a long time.

I'm not sure what settings she uses. Probably the game's defaults at 1280x1024 resolution. I don't have coj or FC2 so I can't comment on those.

who knew DDR3 ram was so cheap. 50 bucks can net you a DDR3-1666 set by G SKill :)
