Tags: Motherboards Graphics Cards Video Last response: February 4, 2011 9:33 AM in Motherboards Share the shoe January 28, 2011 4:17:14 AM Both of these two MoBOs are almost identical, except this one has an on-board video card and its cheaper---> http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... This one doesnt have video, but is more expensive--> http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Can someone please explain why the one cost more than the other. It kinda seems backwards. BTW I do plan on using a actual video card in one of these.

The FX has true 16x/16x crossfire and is the highest end AM3 chipset you can get. The GX only has 8x/8x crossfire and is the next best chipset. | Report abuse the shoe January 28, 2011 8:50:08 PM So if you're not gonna do crossfire, might as well get the one with an on-board/cheaper? | Report abuse the shoe February 3, 2011 11:04:00 PM Best answer selected by the shoe. | Report abuse Maziar Motherboard Master Graphics card Master February 4, 2011 9:33:09 AM This topic has been closed by Maziar | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Motherboards>Why is on-board video cheaper than no on-board video card?> Related ressources: ForumAre the onboard graphics better than my seperate video card ?
