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
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)
