I know intel have HD2000, Hd3000 etc...
Is there an AMD equivalent for bulldozer?

More about : onboard gpu

Technically... Llano aka AMD Fushion would be that, but the llano architechture is based closer to the architecture of Phenom II/Athlon IIs, not bulldozer. Without a discrete graphics card, llano is actually better than Sandy Bridge's on-chip graphics, however, a strong dedicated graphics card will put Sandy Bridge ahead.

So the FX4100 etc... doesn't have on chip GPU because I need something to run games on low until I have enough for a discrete GPU after building new rig. Basically it's FX8120 or i5 2500k but purely based on onboard GPU.

FX processors don't have a built in GPU, I believe some of the AM3+ motherboards still have integrated graphics on them, but they're rather weak considering it's the same graphics chipset AMD used 4 years ago. They struggle to run the original Left 4 Dead, I ran that game on a Radeon 4200 once, wasn't worth it.

The HD3000 graphics on the I5 will perform better, and paired with a good discrete card the I5 will out game any FX processor anyway.

Right.

A llano fusion is only an appropriate choice if you don't intend to add a graphics card later. Say you wanted just a mild system to surf the web, watch movies, play little games here and there like WOW, League of Legends, Runescape, etc. It can handle some high demanding games, but for a purely gaming system, its not very appropriate.

If HD is supported by the game title then go ahead, Skyrim, BF3, F1 2011 I know don't run on Intel HD.

Only really got into computers in the last half year or so, old PC was from Currys. 750W PSU is overkill 'cos it's meant for new build :p

Nothing wrong with 750 watts. PSUs degrade over time, and thats one of the few things that actually can be "future-proofed", thats why I have a 750 PSU, I expect to use it for 2 or 3 builds.
