Is Intel HD 4000 only diff between i3 3220 and 3225?

At my Micro Center, they have an i3 3220 for $99.99 and an i3 3225 for $119.99.

I have my own video card a HD 6870, so is the only difference between the 2 CPU is the integrated graphics?

If so should I get the i3 3220 since I won't be using the Intel graphics anyways?

Yeah, pretty much, although the i3 3220 does support dual displays.

Only difference is the HD 4000 vs HD 2500 graphics. Same processor cores.

If you are looking at a motherboard, too, then Microcenter only offers the $40 bundle discount with the 3225, so that could swing the price deal in favor of the 3225. Otherwise, yeah, just buy whichever is cheaper.
