    Question on Graphics card for i7-2600 System

    BruceMA

      I am building a computer for home/family use:

                Applications are:

                          1.) Moderate video gaming - nothing hard core

                          2.) Some video and audio file editing

                          3.) General home use: browsing, word-processing, email, etc

                          4.) Mult-user environment: many processes/threads running but not necessarily active

       

      The Proposed System is:

                          1.) i7-2600 uP

                          2,) ASUS P8H67-M LE Motherboard

                          3.) 2 x 2GB DDR3

       

      I am confused on the graphics card requirement  because I understand the uP has embedded graphics processing.

      Do I need a graphics card ? I was thinking of a low end one such as Radeon HD570 .

       

      Thanks for any advice,

      Bruce
