The integrated AMD Radeon Xpress 1250 videocard simply doesn't have enough power to get a good score in 3DMark06 on its own. It's not that bad as far as integrated videocards are concerned, even nVIDIA's new GeForce 7050PV chipset can't break past a lowly score of 300 3DMarks. As you might expect, the performance of the MSI MSI K9AGM2-FIH when a GeForce 8800GTS 320MB videocard is installed is very good. The Asus A8N-VM posts the best results of all the boards here, however.
