It depends on what you are doing and if you have a desktop or a laptop. If you are a gamer, then you will know if you need to upgrade to a better video card to play the game. If not, then you will probably be fine with the integrated one, unless you are running high - end business programs. Oh, and if you have a laptop then you cannot upgrade or change the video card at all. You should know if you need a better one.

Why is the display not working after a BSOD with irql less than or equal error for both the graphics card and the integrated card on motherboard?

Sounds like the integrated video card died. An integrated component can fail, just like an add-on card can. Don't dispair though, it doesn't mean you need to replace your motherboard. You can purchase an add-on card, you will need to know if you can use a PCI or AGP card. You can probably use a PCI card. Most motherboards will automatically disable the integrated video when you insert an add-on card. Be sure to ground yourself to the chassis by touching it before inserting any add-on card. A new display card will range in price, it can be more than a new motherboard, or can cost more.

With non-integrated motherboards, the initial cost is higher because more individual components need to be purchased. intergrated motherboards contain built-in components that are normally on found by adding expansion cards.
