You're interpreting what I'm saying wrong. Not saying they're not graphic cards, just not something you can order off Newegg.com. When we deal with graphic cards, we deal with consumer cards like Radeons and Geforces. Those cards are purpose built for gaming, and only gaming. They also evolved with a lot of ID software games, specifically the Quake games up until Doom 3.

My point is, that's how much gaming drives computing. You don't need a Quad core processor with a heavy duty graphics card to type documents and send Email. Not many people are doing graphics related work, or video encoding either.
