    Yes integrated in the motherboard but not integrated in the processor. If you want the integration in the processor then yes you will need a different CPU. However an AM3+ motherboard that supports video does not require the CPU to also support video. If the tables were turned and the CPU had integrated graphics, the motherboard and CPU would both need to support graphics.

    Unless there is something I am not aware of, this is true of both Intel and AMD systems.

    1. The FX4130 does not have integrated video.
    2. You can have integrated HD3000 video with a 760G chipset or similar, but it'd be much weaker than something like an APU.
    3. If you want a processor with an integrated video card, you need something like an A6-5800k and supporting FM2 motherboard.

    Why don't you just tell use what you'll plan to use the computer for and the rest of the components?

    The best I can tell, that motherboard does not support integrated graphics.

    Well if it were me (looking at AMD w/integrated graphics) and I haven't spent on parts yet, I'd go with a FM2 system.

    No you can get a 2x2GB kit if you want. It's just this day and age where several games use more than 4GB, I always recommend the 2x4GB kit.

    To be honest, I'm having issues with my system and have actually pulled one of my sticks. So I'm not currently in dual mode and running with only 4GB myself. The extra 4GB will give headroom for future apps/games. But then the motherboard I have listed has 4 slot, and will support 4 stick, so a future addition of 2x2GB modules could also be an option.

    Correct!

    Each channel on a dual channel motherboard has two banks for two modules. Each module in the channel must be a matched pair or the motherboard will never enter dual-channel mode. The motherboard I listed above has two channels. One channel could have 2x2 and the other 2x4, but each channel must be paired with the same size and speed memory, that is if you want to take advantage of dual channel benefits.

    If you can get an A8-5600k, that'd be better along with 1866MHZ RAM.

    You will need to choose between AM3 or FM2. The parts are not interchangeable.

    If you choose an FM2 CPU, you will need to choose a FM2 motherboard to go with it.
    If you choose an AM3 CPU, you will need to choose a AM3 motherboard to go with it.

    The ga-78lmt-s2p am3 is AM3 and will not support the FM2 A8-5500.
