yes, good question.

Hypothetically, there are no system drivers available, or no drivers for integrated devices.

no drivers...


that means no sound, no system drivers so VERY poor performance if at all, no video since that mobo has integrated video, no ethernet since it has integrated internet, no usb....

basically, an expensive paper weight
