This is my first post here so, HI to everyone.

I have built one computer already with E6600, 2gb Ram, Zalman 9500, 500gb Sata, Intel Dg965wh board. This board has onboard graphics already, so I havent' bought a graphics card yet, waiting for the g80 prices to go down. No overclocking

Anyways I am looking to build another one and for this one i am getting a e4300, 2gb ram, 300 gb sata, and was looking at the Gigabyte GA-965P-DS3 board but i saw that it doesnt' have on board graphics. As I am new to this, I would appreciate some help.

1. i am going to try and overclock this with the Gigabyte GA-965P-DS3 board, but since it doesn't have onboard graphics, will i still be able to get it to work and boot?

2. I dont play games or anything but i just want to learn how to overclock and i have read that this e4300 processor combined with the Gigabyte GA-965P-DS3 works great.

also, any suggestions as to whether i should use the gigabyte board with my E6600 or leave that with the intel board?

and is 500w power supply enough for both of them?

You would need a graphics card with this board. Gigabyte does have a version of this board with on board graphics (GA-965G-DS3). There will be a limit on how much you can over clock the board with the on board graphics. I would recommend getting the non on board graphics (GA-965P-DS3) and get a cheap $30-40 graphics card.

so let me get this right, with the Gigabyte GA-965P-DS3 board, there is no way i would be able to load up without a graphics card?

With no graphic card what do you hope to accomplish?

Yes, you have to put a graphics card in. It will improve the benchmarks of your computer. DVDs will run better. Movies will be better.
