I am in the process of shopping for another desktop PC, one that can handle 3D modeling and animation and especially PC gaming. I went to different stores such as Best Buy and Staples, but they don't have the one in stock that contains a graphics card capable of running today's games such as Titanfall and Assassin's Creed. The graphics card I am talking about range from 1 to 2GB worth of video RAM, which is quite enough of running such titles or extensive 3D animation. On the other hand, they sell desktop PC's running Windows 8.1 with 8GB of RAM and up to 3.4Ghz processing speed, but the video cards are mostly based on Intel's HD Integrated Graphics, which doesn't tell you how much video RAM they contain. These video cards are embedded with the CPU, therefore cannot be upgraded.
So, before I make my final decision on purchasing a desktop PC, would the Intel HD Integrated Graphics be suitable for running higher quality games like the ones I mentioned and extensive 3D animation projects?
