Hello,

Iím trying to understand terminology.

When a motherboard says ďIntegrated Graphics ProcessorĒ does that mean you donít need to buy a graphics PCIe card?

I donít do any major gaming that I would need a $400.00 graphics card.

I would like to match an ASUS P8Z77V to a Intel Core i5-3550.

I would be open to any suggestions for AMD processors and motherboards.

Thanks.

Those are motherboards designed for CPU's with GPU's on the same die. This is Intel's Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge CPU's, or AMD's Llano APU A-series CPU's. Unless the Ivy Bridge CPU's have a radically different GPU, AMD's APU's have the better graphics, but less powerful CPU.

The gap between the Llano APU's and Ivy Bridge, in terms of graphics, is more narrow than with Sandy Bridge. Once AMD's Trinity APU's are out, the gap will grow again on the GPU front. Trinity should be out for desktop PC's soon as mobile parts are already shipping. Current AMD APU's use the FM1 socket, it is unknown if the FM2 socket, the one used with Trinity, will be backwards compatible. Any CPU with an integrated GPU is not designed for games beyond entry level, but for general PC tasks and light gaming, they're good.

Motherboard: ASUS F1A75-V EVO FM1
CPU: AMD A8-3850 Llano 2.9GHz
