Definitely not. You need a graphics card, if you want recommendations, we can provide you with those. Well, to be clear, you technically can, but it would be near-unplayable.

Give us your budget for a GPU.

the HD 4000 can actually play on low with around 30 fps average. your basically playing sort of a like a nerfed console version using an HD 4000

Heh, nerfed console. Couldn't imagine actually trying to play games like that. :/

The HD 4000 will be able to play games like The Sims but playing things like Battlefield 3 on it will be horrible.

If you could tell us your budget for a graphics card, and what sort of settings and fps you would like to achieve then we could help you find the right graphics card.

Yeah, no. Integrated graphics isn't for gaming.

That's hardly an improvement over the HD4000. You want at least an AMD HD7770. Currently you get great value from the HD7870 XT which would be my recommendation. Save money on the CPU to get a better GPU.

I am very much confused that whether I would buy AMD FX 8350 or Intel core i5 3570k .
I want a computer that can play most recent games and do some productivity work like office but my budget is around $519, In that I want a decent GPU a good CPU and motherboard and cabinet.

But that would be costly....My budget is around $519
Please give me some suggestions about low price CPU and GPU which can perform well on modern games and also please mention the motherboard model. Which can support both the CPU and GPU. & I am not interested in Core i3 processors .

If you don't want the i3 I recommend either FX6300 or FX4300 and at least a HD7770. You will need an AM3+ motherboard.

No, that GPU is still bad.

Then what about Gigabyte AMD/ATI Radeon HD 6670 2GB DDR3 GV-R667D3-2GI GPU

The Sapphire 7770 OC sounds great.

Hi SoumyaHD,

I don't think you should just completely write off the Core i3 chips - they are extremely capable processors. From what you have been writing so far, and from the question about the HD4000, it seems that you want to buy a top-end processor which leaves no money for a decent graphics card.

For day to day office use, you will see very little difference in performance between an i5 3570k and an i3 3220. When it comes to gaming, the 3570k is a better chip than the 3220. However, if you stick an i5 3570k with a low-end graphics card you are still going to struggle in games and because of the bottleneck, the i5 3570k won't be used to its full potential anyway.

You need to aim for a well-balanced system to give you the best performance. I recommend going for the i3 3220 and an ATI HD 7850.

Here is an example from personal experience: I used to play BF3 on Ultra with an i3 2100 and an ATi HD 6950. (The i3 3220 is better than the 2100 and the 7850 beats the 6950). When I upgraded to a Core i5 3570k, there was an increase in performance, but nothing huge.

Thank You.
Then I will try i3 3220 and AMD 7850.

What about Intel® Core™ i5-4360U Processor
(3M Cache, up to 3.00 GHz) and what 'U' stands for ??
