Graphics card query

Doing some searching on various computer systems because I want to have one that runs USE and TFU2 well. Some of the computers at Dell and BestBuy look suitable, but often the graphics card they mention is something called "Intel Graphics Media Accelerator." Dell offers a good system for about $600, but the graphics card there is something called Integrated Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator HD, and I don't know if that's any good for USE and TFU2.

One has an Intel Graphics Media Accelerator X4500HD (

I have no idea what the heck that means, and only the pricey high-end computers let me choose the graphics card.

I want to know what the minimum recommended graphics card would be. The website says either "GeForce 9800 GT" or "Radeon HD 3870" as the recommended graphics card. It's not clear to me how those relate to Intel Graphics Media Accelerator.

I would appreciate any help...I'm trying to find out if this Intel thingie is good compared to the recommended Radeon and GeForce cards. I'd rather not upgrade my computer manually.
