Ppl who usually make media centers or HTPC's usually don't stick the highest end 350 EUR worth CPU into the box so having an integrated crap GPU makes no sense at all. Low end CPU's, maybe, but not highest end ones.
meh i think you're under estimating what IGP can become. My laptop just has Intel HD graphics, not 2k,3k, or 4k, all of which are substantially better; but i can play sc2 on low-med graphics, tf2 on low, l4d low, medieval 2 on medium, League of legends on med-high, Torchlight 2 on high at 1080P.
Now i understand those settings(judging by your specs) are dispicable, but they do allow moderate gaming and HTPC convenience. IGP's used to be good for just getting a display output, nothing more. In the last 3-5 years they have skyrocketed in performance. You may be too busy at the High end to appreciate that progress, but to 80% of the market's avg joe's that go to wal-mart and get desktops and laptops its a godsend to be able to play. IGP in 5 years in relation to today's cards will be good enough that AMD+Nvidia will only be making $200+ graphics chips; intel/amd have already made any dedicated card under $75 bucks a moot point, whereas before $75 dedicated could make a world of difference.
