There are chips with no onboard graphics? Are you talking sandy bridge and earlier?
'Coz there ain't no Ivy Bridge's without graphics, Damn it!!
Most of my time when I'm not doing homework, I'm either gaming, video encoding or playing around with photoshop. As has been said, I don't think the integrated graphics will even catch up with the demand for more video crunch that the discrete cards offer, though I am at the low end of the discrete maraket, paying around $450 per card.
