Hey, so I am building my first computer and when I was looking at the details I saw on the On Board Chip set part of New egg it said that it was only supported by integrated graphics of the CPU. Does that mean I cannot have a graphics card? Motherboard: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

More about : board chipset

this means that the video chipset on the board will work with some intel cpu model supported by the board but you could have a graphic card and if this one fail you wont be able to get video signal from the board output if your cpu do not support the in video chipset .

So this board does have a pci-e 3,0 slot - put any gpu in there your power supply will handle or get a cpu with integrated graphics and don't buy a video card.

Many Intel cpus have Intel 4000, 3000 .... integrated graphics that when paired with a mobo supporting Integrated graphics is used, a stand alone video card is only needed if better performance is needed. AMD now has Trinity APUs - decent video built into the cpu that generally out performs the Intel Integrated solution.
