    I've never played it, so I can't say. You can always try it and then add a dedicated card latter on if need be.

    Good looking build. If you do decide on getting a video card down the road, a nice cheep one like the GTX 750 TI is a great choice. The reference has no power connections so it is power efficient and is quiet and it is a single slot so you can put other cards in there too

    Okay, I've been thinking about probably getting a video card next year maybe, I've started looking into more games! I'll have a look at the you suggested.

    Another thing, if you, or anyone else, has any suggestions on a monitor. I've been looking, but there are so many!

    Really, a monitor is so personal

    The only thing I will say is get a monitor with DVI compatibility.

    I did look around and saw that the CPU you picked does not have 1866 speed memory compatibility. The motherboard also does not have compatibility for that, also. The max for both is 1600 mHz. Sorry about that
