Well since that board doesn't have on-board video you will need a video card. Just install it and the video card should come with a VGA to DVI adapter. If not then you will have to get one.

^ Correct, also there are way better boards than a 650i just so you know.

Yes of course it detects the video card when the software isn't installed as it uses the basic windows drivers to get you started, to which you then install the correct drivers for the video card.

I had that exact board and bought a new one after 6 months because it was so horrible. I warn you DO NOT GET A 45NM PROCESSOR FOR THIS BOARD I.E. INTEL E8200
