Can I remove the GPU from this build and still have a usable computer?

I'll get it later, but as I mainly play TF2, it's not super super super important I get anything. I will probably get it sometime in October. Can it hold me over until then/will it work at all w/o it?

Depends on your processor and motherboard.

Is that $105 mobo/CPU that 3258/b85 combo deal on newegg?

If so, yes. Be warned that the pentium and celeron series CPUs have much weaker IGPs than the Core i-series parts do. They just have an unspecified 'Intel HD' graphics core vs the HDXXXX that the Core i-series utilizes.

I don't know how well it will handle TF2 but it will most certainly handle everyday tasks including streaming HD video, though unless you enable hardware acceleration the CPU does most of the work on that anyway.

Yes, it's the B85/3258 combo deal. The custom entry includes a source link which takes you to that page.

Damn, they're out of stock.

Does Newegg usually get stuff back relatively quickly?

Slightly unrelated - I bought an asus laptop with windows 7. How/can I get the copy off of this onto my desktop? If it matters I am going to be putting the HDD from my laptop into my desktop.

Might work immediately, might not. If not you'll need to call windows and get them to reactivate the license. I've never done it myself so I can't tell you the exact process, apparently it's automated now though.

Ive installed my laptops hd on my desktop before and worked instantly. You do need to install drivers for your network adapter, gpu , etc for them to work correctly but windows itself doesnt require anything.
