No. Graphics cards would primarily be beneficial if you were a gamer. There are a few other situations, but generally speaking, if you were going to be doing any of those things, there's a very good chance you would already know that a video card would be useful. So you should be fine with any integrated video chip.

What cl-scott said.

There's stuff outside of gaming they're good for, but that's pretty niche stuff.

If you don't game it's no big deal.

unless you are gaming, doing computer aided design work, or doing any workload that requires gpgpu, gpus aren't necessary
