Is this a good build as far as utilizing integrated graphics?

I'm building a PC for everyday use and very minor gaming. I want a good CPU that has awesome integrated graphics so that I can play KotOR, Sims 3, and Kerbal Space Program. I also want to put a graphics card in eventually without having to replace any other parts.

This was suggested by another person, but I just wanted to confirm how well it would work.

I would recommend using the A10-5800K as the graphics are much more superior and some G Skill sniper series RAM, though it will cost a little more, but everything else looks fine.

For integrated graphics, it is far superior, it may not seem so in the benchmarks, but trust me, it is well worth the extra 20 dollars.
