Onboard video chipset question

Would it be better to buy a motherboard with an onboard chipset? So if the video card is bad, I could still get on the computer until I get a new one, or I can start up the computer before I install the video card.
Or would a motherboard without onboard video be better?

Not my question at all. I already have a video card in hand, but I had a fault motherboard, and sent it back. I'm trying to pick out a new one. But I was wondering if I should get one with a chipset just in case, or if non chipsets are better.

If you have a graphic card, don't buy an onboard gpu mobo. Anyway, what video card do you have?

Most new motherboards by default come with a on board video card. However but to your question its no better or worse. I would personally be more worried about the power supply then if it comes with a video card built in. The power supply determines if your video card will work or not. However be that as it may, most come with a video card built in, so not a big deal in this day and age.

I have a 700w power supply, so I'm not worried about using power.

There is no doubt. There is no onboard gpu better than your graphic card. If your cpu is an AMD, go for a 890X or 890FX.

Edit:

Here you have some good options at differents prices:
