Default graphics card needed ?

simple question..

can i build a computer without an expensive graphics card ?

MSI K8N Neo4-F Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce4 ATX AMD Motherboard

how cheap can i go just to do basic web browsing no games.

although i'm going to get a good card later.

thanks

You can just use the onboard video on the motherboard.

Depends on what games you would like to play.
What are they?

He said he wasnt going to play games, so any graphics card would do. I don't think that Mobo has onboard video.

Don't get a geforce 7800. There really is no reason to get one anymore with the 7900's out.

Well the 7800's are probably going to drop more in price than the 7900's.
