Puddle I am still a little confused as to needing a sep. video card or not since I am not going to be doing any gaming.I just looked at the Intel DG31-PR which has both onboard vid and audio for $72.00 shipped but don't want to purchase if it not going to meet my needs. If I do go with the sep vid card will I need to diable the onboard vid?

The motherboard you selected (Gigabyte GA-P35-S3G LGA 775) does not have onboard graphics so you will need a separate video card. If you get a board with onboard graphics then you will not need a video card.

Also you could save some money by getting this psu and video card.

^^ This board has the same onboard video as that one.

The Intel Intel GMA 3100 video should be fine since you don't plan on gaming.
