It will work as is. As long as it is a dedicated HTPC and not multitasking, you will be fine to play Blu-Ray with the onboard.

Technically the IGP is not on the motherboard - it's on the CPU.

The Intel HD graphics chip is fairly capable and can do 1080p H.264 without issues.

Last I checked that could not properly playback 24p material. Since MOST blu-rays if not all are at 23.976 or something you may get some judder. Do some research and see if it will hurt you or not.
