The Haswell and previous processors have integrated "Intel HD Graphics" that are part of the chip. However, I believe that AMD's integrated graphics are a bit better, so I might recommend losing the i5 and swapping in an FX-8320 for something like $20 less. Then you will have somewhat better integrated graphics. EDIT: just realized that the OP said that they already have a gtx 550ti. There's your GPU! Sorry for the confusion.
