Default Pc with no graphics card.

Hey guys, I'm building a server type thing and we dont need a graphics card, I have a i5 750 prosesser and I am getting this motherboard: Asus P7H55-M LX Motherboard | Ebuyer.com

Will I need a graphics card with that for the computer to work?

Thanks alot,
-Dan

No, you don't need a video card if you go with that.

That board has integrated graphics (with both VGA and DVI outputs), so you won't need a separate card. It seems a bit low to the ground on features though.

EDIT: alas, ninja'd

eh sorry guys but he does need a gfx card. h55 mobos support the use of onboard video only when it's used with a cpu that has the gpu (remember for setups like these the gpu is on the cpu not the mobo).

if you don't wanna use a dedicated card you need to swap the cpu out for any i3 or i5 6xx series cpu. i5 7xx series and i7's will not work for that.

Ya, you're right....

I was think the 750 had the GPU for some reason....

Well that sucks. So his server won't work without a graphics card because he has already bought the CPU?
