I just know what Stephan just said. Either some gfx card based
on e.g. nVidia GeForce 7300, or a motherboard with integrated
intel graphics, where the motherboard's chipset has to be one 
that is supported by Haiku's driver.

Looking at
http://haiku.it.su.se:8180/source/xref/src/add-ons/kernel/drivers/graphics/intel_extreme/driver.cpp
it seems motherboards with integrated graphics based on the following 
Intel chipsets should be supported:

        {0x3577, INTEL_TYPE_83x, "i830GM"},
        {0x2562, INTEL_TYPE_83x, "i845G"},

        {0x2572, INTEL_TYPE_85x, "i865G"},
        {0x3582, INTEL_TYPE_85x, "i855G"},

        {0x2792, INTEL_TYPE_91x, "i910"},
        {0x258a, INTEL_TYPE_91x, "i915"},
        {0x2582, INTEL_TYPE_91x, "i915G"},
        {0x2592, INTEL_TYPE_91x, "i915GM"},
        {0x2772, INTEL_TYPE_945, "i945G"},
        {0x27a2, INTEL_TYPE_945, "i945GM"},
        {0x27ae, INTEL_TYPE_945M, "i945GME"},
        {0x29a2, INTEL_TYPE_965, "i965G"},
        {0x2a02, INTEL_TYPE_965M, "i965GM"},
        {0x29b2, INTEL_TYPE_G33, "G33G"},
        {0x29c2, INTEL_TYPE_G33, "Q35G"},
        {0x29d2, INTEL_TYPE_G33, "Q33G"},

I don't know how easy or hard it is to find a motherboard
with one of these chipsets. PC hardware changes all the time. :/
I'm probably going to stock up on a couple of GF 7300.
(~40 Euro at my favorite store)
