I'm looking to build a desktop PC based on some new Ivy Bridge mid-range processor (e.g. Core i5-3570K) and mid-range/performance motherboard (Z77).
Top Ivy Bridge processors seems to include some new integrated graphics unit HD4000. So I'm thinking about skipping a discrete GPU for a few more months.
I should clarify that I am also thinking about buying a $200-level discrete GPU right now, but the most likely plan is to wait a little and see which new games come out in 2012 before deciding on one. So why not go with integrated graphics for now?
Will I be able to watch blu-ray 3D movies using only HD4000 integrated graphics?
Any other comparison (what games can be played/tasks performed)?
