Why wouldn't you get a graphics card?

No, neither the motherboard nor the CPU have graphics capabilities - the easiest way to tell is to look at the I/O ports of the motherboard, in the case of the AsRock 970 Extreme3, you notice there are no DVI, HDMI or even VGA outputs... nowhere to connect a monitor, that should be your first indication that a dedicated graphics card will be needed.
Hope it helps

What are you using this build for? If you are really against a graphics card, get a trinity APU.

That will work, but again, I ask what the purpose of this build is.

Both of your latest builds would work. Personally, I'd go with the Intel build. When you've saved enough money, get a quality power supply and a discrete graphics card for gaming.
