I was wondering if I need a video card for this mobo, or will the built in VGA port work? You can look at the board here:

The onboard VGA port will work just fine, however if your even thinking about playing any high end games or doing any sort of video editing etc. I would recommend getting a better video card. But, if you rnot planning on doing that type of gaming, the onboard VGA port will work. (not to mention it will save you some cash on a video card)

Dude all you have to do is read the article you just linked to. Can you read?
Why are you building a PC if you don't enough about one to decide which parts to get.
Oh..and yea...this board doesn't have integrated graphics. If your not concerned about graphics or are just a cheap person. Then I recommend like an x300 or a nvidia 5200.

BTW....Don't start a question inthe middle of a thread. Instead start a new thread


EDIT:

lol thats PCI
