My desktop uses the G35. The released drivers are still complete crap.
I had to compile from git head to have reliable, working video. It's
still not something I would use for my dedicated front-end (video is a
bit jerky and uses way too much cpu). I would assume the G45 would have
similar support issues being so new. Other than the graphics, the intel
chipset is very stable under Linux. I'd recommend just going with a
cheap Nvidia card for now and maybe pull it later once the Intel
graphics support improves if being "free" is important to you.
