I've been watching videos, and it's gotten me a little confused. Some say it's not mandatory to buy a graphics card, and some say it is. My build is not meant for gaming or anything.

It's not mandatory because your cpu comes with integrated graphics and your not using it for gaming.

Get this cheaper because there is a $20 rebate Original Price 59.99 - $20 Rebate=$39.99
Also Asus makes better quality and reliability mobo.

Yes, it matters. That FM2 CPU will not work with the ASUS FM1 motherboard. Stick with your original set up. I put MSI on the same level as Gigabyte (about 1 step below ASUS) and I've never had a problem with Gigabyte boards.
