Temporary Graphics Card

Hey everyone, I decided that, with the Intel i7, I should save $500 for more PC upgrades and just temporarily use the graphics card that's installed on the CPU. Would that work? If it did, would I then be able to install a graphics card a couple of months later with no problems? Thanks for any responses!

    My motherboard is a Gigabyte GA Z68X (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128498&nm_mc=AFC-C8Junction&cm_mmc=AFC-C8Junction-_-RSSDailyDeals-_-na-_-na&AID=10521304&PID=4176827&SID=2bibgvtx0xp3) I'm going to play more or less really small, not demanding games (For example, Minecraft), but as soon as I get that new graphics card then yes, I plan to.
  3. Sure, just use the on board now and as soon you got the money go for an upgrade. Might wanne wait till next year for the new series.
    Don't forget to disable ( if needed, dunno if it's always ) your on board gpu when you're using the new one.

    How would I disable it?

    I think I might just buy a low-cost graphics card. Thanks though!
