Gday.
No. Just another bit to go wrong, Quality not that great, many posts with driver or other problems. If you reckon it is essential, buy a separate webcam.
This is just me, but I would not bother at all with a webcam. Bought one about 2 years ago, good quality, thought, talk to the family. Set it up 5 feet away, (did not want to poke people in the eye if I moved forward slightly, or frighten the kids with a monster face) The novelty lasted a couple of months, just a pain. Other person had be on line, or you run software to see if they are. Or you send them an invitation to chat, or an email to say you want to talk to them at a given time. Much easer to pick up the phone or use your iPad.

Very easy to get confused with the Intel naming, AMD was always much simpler.
When you have decided on the parts you are going to purchase, download the manuals, especially the MB one as it is quite likely to be more up to date than tha one you get in the box.
Here is the G2G how to build, thanks to Troy and Artellos, > http://www.geekstogo...r-own-computer/
