Puh not a cheap competition. For climbing the top of the rank you need a core i5 or a really good s775 sys. Am i right?

The question is ... what platform to choose?

890GX seems to be the obvious choice, but I think the Intel GMA HD should get pretty close.

It's 'cheap-ish'. 890GX or H55 should do the trick, I think.

Just 'cause of "april fools" - is integrated notebook graphics allowed? I have Gateway laptop with M9800GTS and graphics is integrated there - no MXM or something like that)))

It's discrete
If you have a SATA controller like Marvell on your MoBo - it isn't called integrated, it's anyway discrete.

more interesting is what is allowed in the competition. Yeah, I've read the rules page. I mean the "undocumented" ones.
