Is there any convention used to interpret motherboard descriptions ? I was looking at a MOBO with onboard video and audio (Asus M3N78-VM nvidia geforce 8200 chipset micro ATX ) and wondering if it has what it takes to run a flight simulator program with the following recommended requirements:

Recommended 3D-graphics cards
Nvidia GeForce 3 and GeForce 4
Nvidia GeForce 4Go / FX Go / Go 6800
Nvidia GeForce FX series (5700, 5900)
Nvidia GeForce 6 series (6600, 6800, etc.)
Nvidia GeForce 7 series (7800)

ATI Radeon 9xxx series
ATI Radeon X-series (X550, X600, X700, X800, X850, X13xx, X16xx, X18xx)
ATI Mobility Radeon 9xxx series
ATI Mobility Radeon X series

Nvidia GeForce FX 5200 (These cards are Ok, but some model/scenery combinations might not run fast enough)

Does the GeForce 8200 chipset on the MOBO meet or exceed the video card recommendations ?
Please assume that all other system requirements will be met in the completed system.

No if a program lists video cards as requirements that means it needs a separate video card which has more features then onboard video is capable of
Those requirements are not real high so you could but that board and add a Nvidia card to it like a 8600Gt or a 9500Gt which are newer and more powerful then the 7800GT.
