Does the i5 3330 have integrated graphics? Which games can it run?
I recently built a gaming PC but one of the main components- the GPU- has not yet been bought. I plan to buy an Nvidia GTX660. However, for the time being, I wanted to play games and I was wondering if my processor, an i5 3330, had integrated graphics. Also, if it does have integrated graphics, which games will it be able to play without causing any problems? Thanks in advance!
Yes it does have integrated graphics (HD 2500) see the data sheet for more details
