No the situation is the same with both an AMD and an Intel build, once you told us the games you wished to play in your reply #13 it became apparent that you would benefit from a dedicated video card to get the performance that those games require.

You are looking at a minimum of 100 euros to get anywhere near the performance you need, let us know the maximum you wish to pay.

It may be a pain to do it but consider using the CPUs graphics for now and save up enough funds to get a decent video card that will compliment your other new hardware.

Couple of good cards that will cost between 140 and 150 euros, the HD7850 is not as fast as the GTX650Ti but as it is 256-bit the in depth video quality of the card will be better.

You told us in your reply #5 that you have a 500W PSU so I made sure that both cards were covered PSU output requirement wise, what I cannot provide is information as to how good the quality is of your present PSU as we cannot research a PSU with no product details to go on.

HD7850 System Requirements;

500W (or greater) power supply with one 75W 6-pin PCI Express power connector recommended7 (Please ensure that your PSU has both of these before purchasing a HD7850 card).

If your budget will allow it http://www.amazon.co...S/?tag=pcp0f-21
Read the reviews at the link as it will give you an idea of the gaming performance of the card.
