Hi guys. Do you know if one is able to do a test boot before installing your graphics card?

The reason why I'm asking is because I received my H61 motherboard and all the other parts, but not my graphics card. It should be here by Friday. As you know the Asus P8H61 Pro has no VGA ports so I can't plug in my monitor. Will I still be able to boot up my PC without any display?

Here is the build:
Asus P8H61 Pro
Intel Core i3 2120
Corsair XMS3 4Gb 1333Mhz
Gigabyte GTX 560 Ti (not here yet)
Antec HCG 620W
WD Caviar Blue 500Gb SATA6
Sony 24x DVD Writer
Zalman Z9 Plus

Theres no point really,
you would hear/see the fans running but thats it, and what if theres an error message?
You won't see it, I would just be patient and wait for the card :)
