So, I found a guy on a local online trading site (people don't know what they're selling there) who offers the 4670 for 17,50$ (yes, usd), but says that the fan is loud and sometimes stops. I told him to download GpuZ, and he said the temps were 40idle 60 playing games, which to my knowlege is fine. I'm also getting an intel core i5 3210M processor, which to my knowlege comes with the integrated intel HD 4000.

Here are the 2 questions:

1.Will I NEED a gpu if I use the processor "gpu", so I can save up more money and wait for the prices to drop so I can buy a dedicated gpu?


2. Should I go for the 4670, and buy a better one later? My main games are gonna be Minecraft (with shaders hopefully), League of legends, maybe dota2, and bf3 on medium.


Regards.

No you don't need a GPU, the integrated will work fine on light games but for more intensive games your going to need a dedicated GPU.
The 4670 would be fine for your needs of gaming but if you do play any more intensive games then you may consider upgrading but for those games it would be perfect.
Hope this helps!

Cheers, man! Nice reply, nice explanation, nice person, +1 from me!

Also, what about the fan? Guy says it's loud and it starts and stops, but only maxes 60°C. Is it gonna break and start overheating to critical temps over time?

Thanks ;)  , honestly that's not the best sign, although the fan could be replaced the damage could have already been done, 60 Degrees wont damage the board but if it goes past 75 degrees when the fan stops working it could cause damage.
But if the graphics card is still functional then I guess no major damage has been done to the components and I would replace the fan before use if you buy it.
Hope this helps :)
