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.

    Is it worth the extra money? I have a low budget.

    Thanks.
  3. 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.
