    I would try it without, that A10 has a 7660D built in which is a proper entry level gaming GPU, you can always add in a card later without re installing anything.

    Just make sure you get good fast RAM, the stuff I listed was 1866Mhz, don't be tempted to get anything less as the APU uses your system RAM to drive the GPU and if it's slow (1333Mhz) you will kill the gaming performance. Always double check the Mobo's manufactures web site for lists of compatible RAM modules, in theory they should all work, but some may not auto configure to the correct speed, which means setting it manually in the BIOS (not a difficult job, but if you can avoid the dicking about it's worth an easy life)
