I can never recommend Intel GPUs. Technically the sheer CPU power of an i3 means that it can power through anything, but the terrible Intel GPU drivers means that pretty basic stuff (like 24p support for one) is usually hit or miss. I would rather recommend something AMD.
If Linux is your goal its Nvidia or nothing.
