I have choppy video and my windows are choppy when I move them around. Also when my PC 'turns off monitor' it does not turn off normally but like the cable was unplugged. I guess I need to install a driver for my new 'graphics' chip. Can someone please provide the 'best' way of installing graphics drivers for my Celeron G1820 CPU.

Here is what I get from lspci:

00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Xeon E3-1200 v3/4th Gen Core Processor Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 06)

I can provide any additional info if needed.

You should Install xf86-video-intel a binary package containing driver for all Intel GPU Chipsets.
Because I don't know the exact nature of your problem (whether it is the driver, Kernel module, or Xorg Configuration) I cant recommend any additional steps. But it's worth mentioning that Xorg config file and modeset in Grub are also places to look at.

I think you are doing something wrong. because the Intel driver on Mint should work out of the box. first update your repos and also your mint then go for the solution. –  r004 Mar 9 at 0:52

@mbiber install the package xserver-xorg-video-intel –  r004 Mar 9 at 20:56
    
It's installed already –  mbiber Mar 16 at 20:12
