Install it, then run it:
apt-get install inxi
inxi -c0 -G

https://wiki.debian.org/InstallingDebianOn/Intel/NUC5PPYH reports your 8086:22b1
Intel gfxchip is not supported on (standard with 3.16 kernel) Debian Jessie, but
is supported on Debian Stretch.
> I have pasted Xorg log at https://paste.debian.net/933539
from that log:
(EE) open /dev/dri/card0: No such file or directory
(II) FBDEV(1): using default device
confirms your gfxchip is not supported by the software installed and is falling
back to a generic driver that is not even minimally usable with Gnome and/or GDM.
> Should I just try Mate or XFCE?? is it possible that works?
You should install Stretch. Even with Mate or Xfce video performance will be
poor at best in Jessie unless you can install whatever is required from backports.
