Some i5s have intergrated and some don't. We need to know the specifics.

EDIT: might as well just get an i7

It will usually say in the manual, if not, you have to open it up. It's good to ask the clerk too.

A computer you buy at a general electronics store will most likely not have a graphics card in it unless it's well over a $1000. Read the specs or ask the people at the store before you buy it.

Edit: A laptop isn't going to have a good graphics card in it for cheap, unless you really need a laptop I'd just build/buy a desktop. Also, anything under a 520/6500(?) isn't much better than a integrated card.
