You do know that Axel already has packages with those patches available so you 
don't have to compile your own kernel, yes?

Uh, according to who? I ran a 3200+ on my 7NIF2 while using the onboard 
graphics for ages before moving it to another board, no problems to speak 
of... The only limitation of using the onboard graphics that I know of is you 
can't run your memory in dual-channel mode, which is pretty inconsequential 
for Myth (might make a bit of difference for HDTV, not sure). Perhaps you've 
had a flakey board from the get-go.
