Ok well I have been working on my gaming rig for quite a while now and I officially now have everything for it except for one thing. That one thing being the GPU, I would rather wait a little bit before getting my GPU so I can save money for a good one. I have heard that with my current CPU and Motherboard it is possible to run my computer w/o a GPU for the time being. Well here is my current build:


CPU- Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz (3.7GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 3000 BX80623I52500K

Case- Thermaltake V3 Black Edition VL80001W2Z Black SECC / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Monitor- HP 2711x Black 27" Full HD LED BackLight LCD Monitor Slim Design 250 cd/m2 DC 3,000,000:1 (1,000:1)

Speakers- Logitech Z323 30 Watts (RMS) 2.1 Speaker System

I think I want different speakers something a lil bit more powerful and a better design these ones are horrendous and bulky.

Motherboard- ASUS P8Z68-V PRO/GEN3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS

SSD- OCZ VTX3-25SAT3-120G Vertex 3 Solid State Drive - 120GB, 2.5", SATA III

HDD- Western Digital WD10EZRX Caviar Green 1TB Internal Hard Drive - SATA 6GBps, 64MB, OEM

So will I be able to run this rig w/o a GPU for the time being?

i5-3570k and a Z77 instead.

You will be able to use the integrated graphics if you don't have the graphics card.

Suggest Caviar blue or black for the hard drive.

Do you have Windows?

You have no RAM listed. Get this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Suggest the Crucial M4 over a OCZ SSD.

Do you need an optical drive?
