well, the mobo does NOT have on-board video, so you'll NEED a video card so you can see what's on the screen.
but don't make the mistake i did......
whatever stick of RAM you got, make sure when you want to add another stick later down the road to get the EXACT same stick.
so i would guess as long as you have the mobo, memory, psu, and video card, you can test it out...oh yeah and of course the CPU!
