The integrated nVidia chip, the 6150, is FAR better than the Intel chip however its still muck in the grand scheme of things. At 800×600 on Medium detail settings you’d be hitting around 12/13fps on Doom 3 and about 25fps in HL2, not exactly ideal.

As for whether the takeover would be good or bad, well as far as I can see the only thing that could go wrong is that the top tier motherboard manufacturers could be pressured into making their boards only support one particular chipset, that said it would be a pretty ridiculous move on their part given the split in the industry currently, but hey, stranger things have happened. :?
