Boot without a video card?

I was hoping to boot my "pc" withough a video card. My motherboard is the asrock 970de3-u3s3. There is no onboard video card and i really have no need for a video card once it is booted i use ssh and web gui to manage it. any thoughts on if and how i can make this work? The reason i want to do this is i am using all the PCI/PCIe slots for Drive controllers.

  1. I assume you're going to access this system remotely. If so, then yeah, it will work. You just need to be able to listen to when (if) the system requires a login. Once you're up and running, you're good to go.

    A video card is required to post a system, and post is a requirement for boot, even when using remotely a basic video card integrated or not is required. When using it remotly it will work without a monitor plugged in but a video card is still required.

    And I assume that a USB video card will not work as a "video card" to boot ?
