Hey,

I'm looking at building my first AMD System with an 8 core 3.5ghz monster in it, however I realised all but one motherboard I found, lacks integrated graphics.

I won't be gaming, however want two screens, one as main, one as secondary, and both to display at 1080P. One DVI, One HDMI.

I found this motherboard, will this motherboard do the job?

Thanks! I look forward to hearing your responses!

Why not just buy a standard motherboard and a cheap graphics card like a 7750 for $70. or even cheaper like a 5450 for like $30. It will still blow away any integrated graphics and take that offload off your system RAM since all integrated always use your system RAM.

+1! Totally agree!

Would a 5450 support just the two monitors? Not planning on gaming, just desktop work, maybe some photoshop, no gaming,

Yes. But the IGP will run 2 monitors just dandy.

HOWEVER, only one via a digital port - the second must be pushed from the d-sub port.
