This guy gets it. I'm not saying integrated is the way to go for hardcore gaming at all, just that its not the garbage we all automatically categorize it as. Simplifying a full PC into just a couple of parts is pretty cool IMO and I'm curious how much of a whole system we can fit onto a single chip in the future. Also, using less power matters to some people. Hardcore pc gamers that only care about cheapness and raw power will probably not fit into that crowd but it exists and the industry is swiftly moving in that direction as of late.
By the way, my 2nd system is a dedicated gaming rig but based on Intel i5-3450 that I got from NEB for $170 few months back, together with the $90AR HIS HD 7770 I get around 20,100 3DMark'06 score and around 55W idle or 110W gaming, once again I made the move from AMD X6 + HD4850 due the performance and power savings.
