Gigabyte GA-965P-DS3 question?

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.

  1. 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?
  2. which board do you guys reccommend since i dont have a graphics card?
  3. 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.
  4. 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?
  6. 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.
