Hi guys..

I plan on building a system an intel i5 2500k, with a asus P8P67 - PRO motherboard and a Asus Radeon HD 6950 GPU.
Here's my question, currently i dont have a monitor, but i do have a 32" LED TV. As soon as i have assembled everything, can i connect the LED tv to the graphics card's HDMI output and boot for the first time. Will the display work or should i connect the TV to my motherboard via a VGA cable and install Windows 7 and graphic card drivers before connecting the TV to my GPU?

VGA/DVI cable will work without an issue. If you want to connect HDMI and boot the pc, you should change the bios PCIe settings and Disable usb booting.
