Hello there! I have been planning to build a pc for some time. As this is my first time, I have some confusion regarding the hardware I want to buy.

I want to buy following components:

CPU: Ryzen 5 2600x
Motherboard: Gigabyte X470 Aorus Ultra Gaming

The problem is that the CPU doesn't has an integrated graphics. However the motherboard specs says that it has onboard Intel HD Graphics, with a HDMI 2.0 port.

Due to budget limitations, I am planning to buy a discrete graphics later on. Will my computer work with the above components? Or is it a necessity to buy graphics card?

P.S.- All other components are compatible with motherboard.

That board's onboard graphics only work when running a processor with integrated graphics, so no, you will not be able to use your system without a discrete GPU.

If you are on a budget, wait to build the system until you can build the system in full.

That motherboard has Intel LAN, not graphics. Your source material is wrong and probably a copy and paste error by the retailer. AMD motherboards will never, ever, ever, ever, ever support "integrated" Intel HD graphics unless the sky is falling and pigs grow wings. ;)

Here's the specs--> https://www.gigabyte.com/Motherboard/X470-AORUS-ULTRA-GAMING-rev-10#kf

As others have stated, you will need a separate graphics card to use that particular CPU. Any crappy PCI-E card by AMD or NVIDIA will work.
