I think the onboard controller will have such a small performance hit compared to a dedicated one that you should be just fine using it. Sure, a dedicated one will give you better performance, but it's likely to be too minimal to really matter, or even be noticeable. Unless you're planning to run a server, in which case you've chosen the wrong type of motherboard.
Thanks for the considerationable advice frog. well with the setup i am gonna have.. what card do you suggest i use?. i just need it for some Hard core gaming..thats really all.. I am only using 1 LCD monitor (22 inch).
