I agree 100% with your entire post.

With one small caveat:

I have always gone with "all Intel, all the time", but when I put a  22"
widescreen monitor on this computer (Intel dual core) it had a slow crawl near
the top of the screen.   I very reluctantly put a 512mb ATI Raedon X1550 card in
it (which supported digital output - the built-in Intel video had analog output
only) and the crawl disappeared.

I suspect that it was something to do with electrical interference of some kind.

I still recommend Intel motherboards and use Intel video in all of my other
computers.  Except this one.
