I will have to settle on Ivy Bridge's HD 4000 iGPU, since I'm waiting on a price drop for non-reference GTX 670's or for the GTX 660ti to come out.

Will I need an aftermarket CPU cooler?

I may also dabble in overclocking my i5 (but only up to 4.2 GHz) if you guys deem a cooler necessary for integrated graphics.

Having a GPU isn't going to affect your CPU temps. An after market cooler is definitely necessary for oc'ing though, especially with ivy

Wait, doesn't "integrated graphics" mean it's inside the CPU? If not, I need to re-title my topic...
