    Motherboard-based graphics chips are long extinct, all integrated graphics these days are on the CPU so the only option is the HD4600 on your i5. I believe all of Intel's Socket 1150 chips allow it's use (previously P-series chipsets didn't, but there aren't any for Socket 1150).

    I would recommend Asus or Gigabyte, Gigabyte's ram is uk based, and their ultra durable series is worth considering, is it have to be m-itx or can it be m-atx?
