Integrated graphics chipsets use the same system bus as addon they just don't have a seperate slot etc..

The bigger question is surely whats the point of a integrated PCI-E card. I mean the whole point of PCI-E was to get highend cards. To use it over AGP in an integrated system is just a waste of resources and an unecessary cost.

Unless the mobo lacks an AGP bus.
The specs say that there is an empty PCI-E slot for future upgrades.
Why support a defunct standard (AGP)?

this has happened to me

If you have an oem xp and the mobo fails you must get one EXACTLY THE SAME or buy a new xp it clearly says in the EULA that a new motherboard constitutes a new pc
