Will my CPU run blender?

I have a AMD A8-7600 Quad-Core APU Kaveri Processor 3.1GHz Socket FM2+ CPU. Will this run blender pretty smoothly? My motherboard has integrated AMD R7 series 2gb video card and I have 8 GB memory. I haven’t gotten everything I’ve needed for my first build but I’d like to know ahead of time if it’s worth returning anything and getting something better or if my dollar can be stretched and I can use this software with ease.

Hi, if you start with Blender it is more than enough.
There are sometimes problems with integrated GPU but R7 should work fine.

Welcome to the forum, mib

I heard Nvidia video cards are recommended.
