Intergrated cards...

Awhile ago, on another post, I raised the question about SFF (Small Form Factor) PCs. Got some good responses. This goes hand in hand with that post. Intergrated cards: whats your take on them. I know that for the gamers and purist on this forum, that is a no-no. But for most folks, like me, I don't see a problem especialy if one has enough ram. A small foot print is what I"m looking for. I don't need nor want the typical Full/Mid-tower. Nor do I need to expand once I've have a PC up and running. My needs are simple. Surfing the internet, emailing, IMing, a word processor and of course fooling around with Linux. If I go in that direction - SFF/mATX- I will make certain PCI/Video slots are avalible just in case. My only concern is the compatiblity with Linux OS. Any problems in that department? I'd like comments from pople who have or are using a Linux OS with intergrated components. One other thing, how do I go about checking Linux hardware compatiblity? Is there a site I can key in what I'm looking to purchase? Thanks.

If it works, I use it. If it doesn't, I'll either not buy the system if it's not fully expandable or shut off the on-board and install an actual card that does work. I've not had any problems with the embedded network cards, occassionally with on-board video, and hit about 50/50 with on-board sound chips. The only reason I'm using an older SBLive card right now is for my trustworthy, ancient joystick - the mobo doesn't have a game/midi port.
