Need help setting up APU

I just recently got an AMD A8-5600k and I have seen videos of people playing games with just the processor and not GPU and my GPU just went out and am going to be sending it back for a replacement and wanted to know if there was a way to play any sort of games with just the APU. I have seen videos of people doing it but when I go and try it says I need to update my graphics card drivers and can't seem to find a solution. I have tried looking it up but can't seem to find any sort of instructions and I have never done this before. This is still my first build any help is appreciated thank you.

  1. If you have fast RAM like 1866mhz in dual channel, it will game alright @ 720p. Do not much expect much from it @ 1080p.
  2. I have 12gb of 1866 G.Skill I don't know if that matters much but I just don't know how to set it up to use like the graphics side. When I got to screen resolution and advanced settings I says "Standard VGA Graphics Adapter"
  3. Does your mobo have HDMI out?
  4. Yes it does but I'm using the DVI-D

    You don't have your drivers installed. Go to the motherboard site and install all the drivers.
