Currently I have my build (show in my profile) and I am contemplating moving to a more compact build around Gigabyte GA-Z270N-Gaming 5 + i7 7700 + 16Gb DDR4 + Fractal Design Nano S.

I am not a gamer but have a daughter who plays (not heavily) LoL, and I use Lightroom and Photoshop.

In light of that, do I need to care for a discrete GPU or the internal graphics on that I7 (HD Graphics 630) would do a good job? I am having a hard time with my current AMD 6850 on Sierra (Black screen, still not able to fix it with the new Clover fix for it), and I wonder if the internal Intel graphics is a more compatible/OOB install.

Thanks for your opinions/information.
