Try not to get on-board video. Other than that you should be good to go:)

There is a problem with sharing ram with the video... This messes with the timing in the computer and can lock up Mach. That said I am running a CHEAP computer with on-board video. It runs GREAT but I have had problems with it in the past.
Just get a computer that you can put a video card in and you should be good.
