i'm planning on getting this cpu but do not have the money for a gpu and am not sure if the computer will work without one.
 
The FX series DOES NOT have integrated graphics onboard the CPU itself. As was stated earlier, if the motherboard has an integrated graphics chipset, it will be fine. There are motherboards out there that do, it really depends on what model you have.

yes, the fx6300 has a dedicated onboard graphics and will be fine without a dedicated graphics unit

BE WARE: Your games and video processes will suffer from the weak onboard graphics though.

Swordkd is correct. The AMD FX Series for AM3+ Socket does not have a GPU built onto the CPU. You can get an AM3+ motherboard with a AMD 980G, 880G, or 890GX chipset which has a ati 4000 series GPU built in the motherboard chipset.

You must have bought a "magic" 6300! You are right about the onboard graphics being weak. They exhibit ZERO pixels! And you are a "CPU Master". So much for that badge having any meaning.....

All the boards that have built in graphics are really crappy boards for FX cpu's.. They were designed pre- FX and it shows. They have half-baked bios support bolted on. They don't have the vrm circuitry of a good 970 chipset board or even a mediocre 990 chipset board. This is very important as a 6300 or 8320 or even a 4350 are very demanding and really work best with 8+2 boards with a nice heatpiped northbridge and mosfets.
