    You could pretty much use most GPUs.
    But what are you gonna use it for and how much money do you have?

    ​Why would you get a CPU with integrated graphics when you're planning on going dedicated?
    When the earth is changed into a humid dungeon,
    In which Hope like a bat
    Goes beating the walls with her timid wings
    And knocking her head against the rotten ceiling;
    When the rain stretching out its endless train
    Imitates the bars of a vast prison
    And a silent horde of loathsome spiders
    Comes to spin their webs in the depths of our brains,
    All at once the bells leap with rage
    And hurl a frightful roar at heaven,
    Even as wandering spirits with no country
    Burst into a stubborn, whimpering cry.
    — And without drums or music, long hearses
    Pass by slowly in my soul; Hope, vanquished,
    Weeps, and atrocious, despotic Anguish
    On my bowed skull plants her black flag.

    No chance of integrated graphics running Skyrim on high! SC2 maybe but I don't know how graphic intense that game is.

    According to other forums, this card will be able to run Skyrim on High settings, but Skyrim is CPU intensive as well so both go hand in hand.

    ahm even tho u didnt tell me your budget i can tell you that:

    1:this cpu wont probably bottleneck any graphics card currently available.

    2:100$-320$ i would go amd at mid-high end,but for the really high end Nvidea..lets face it i have heard some great reviews from the r9 279x
    Amazon.com: Gigabyte R9 270X GDDR5-2GB 2xDVI/HDMI/DP OC Graphics Card (GV-R927XOC-2GD): Electronics
    and its about 200$

    so yea.. tell us what you need ;D

    thank me if i helped you

    Thanks! i ended up getting a 650TI SuperSuperclocked for $100 xD it might bottleneck but my gf only wants to run Skyrim, SC2, league on Max settings or near max that is! plus i could just show her my dick and she would forget what a PC is in the first place.
