Hey, this question goes to show how little I know about graphics hardware. I have an ATI Radeon HD 3200 Graphics chipset on my motherboard. Can I use that to mine? Or can you only GPU mine with a dedicated graphics card?

It doesn't have any OpenCL support, so no, you can't mine with it using existing miners.
There may be a miner made specifically for older cards that might work?
If not, you'd have to reinvent the wheel yourself on that one.

Donations welcome, not required.
I'll be honest, any donations aren't used for a good cause, they go directly to booze, food, herbal substances Wink, and computer hardware.
I will squander the money, but hell, at least you know one person is having a good time.
