I ordered an Intel G3240 3.1 ghz 1150 CPU, last week, it arrived yesterday by courier. I think this is one of the new haswell refresh CPU's (well it was released this year)
In its specs it says Processor Graphics ‡ Intel® HD Graphics
The ‡ says this underneath

Does this mean as long as the mobo is Intel based, and has Intel drivers, it'll work?
The mobo I was going to get is the Asus B85M-E
It says: Integrated Graphics Processor and has DVI/HDMI/VGA and displayport on the mobo
The question is, if I install this CPU on this mobo (since the mobo does have Intel drivers, and says Integrated Graphics processor etc) and the CPU says Intel HD graphics, if I install the CPU, will the onboard video connections work?? Without me having to install a separate card?? Since there's no point in buying one if there's 4 video connections on the mobo
Any info would be appreciated
