Solved Can I get by with onboard graphics Tags: TV Graphics Optical Media Systems Last response: August 20, 2013 8:32 AM in Systems Share franker August 20, 2013 8:25:27 AM Parts: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/1tReH + 1 optical drive +4 sata hd +2 pci tv tuners This is replacing my always on computer that is connected to my 50" tv as a htpc. It usually is running a VM running in the background so I can remote into the machine without disturbing whoever is watching. My main question is, do you think I can just get by with the onboard graphics? If not, what card would you recommend? Windows 7 Media Center was my previous media solution, but I did buy Windows 8 Pro with Media Center. I just never tested that out.

Also, if you find out you need more gpu power you can always add one later on. Might as well just use the intel hd 5000 at first since you already have it. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
