I have a ASRock P67 Pro 3 motherboard, Owners manual here:
ftp://174.142.97.10/manual/qig/P67%20Pro3_multiQIG.pdf

On page 2 is the layout of motherboard, when putting together my system I failed to realize there wouldn't be VGA, HDMI, or DVI output, only realized this after getting the system together, I am prepared to purchase a video card but would like to get this up and running before it arrives. Is there any way of using a USB out to a HDMI so I can connect it to tv at least?

When desktop computers don't have video cards what does the VGA plug in those computers connect to? Straight to the motherboard i assume, and if so can I purchase one of those plugs. My CPU has integrated graphics.

Can someone point me to a work around here?

The only way to set that up would be to have video from the motherboard before hand which you cant do.If your not much into gaming id recommend getting the HD5670. Its really cheap like 50$ but surprisingly powerfull its able to play bf3 at 1600x900 at high with high framerate.

Your CPU does have integrated graphics but the P67 boards do not support it, that's why they have no video out. You must use a PCI-E graphics card.

Other Intel boards would support your CPUs integrated graphics, eg H67, Z68, H77, Z77,.

Bummer, and I already put everything together, I guess this is going to be a bit better 'puter than I intended it to be.
So, I have that mobo
a intel pentium 2.9 ghz 3 mb cache, lag 1155 65 W
A 4 gb ddr3 memory kit,
A 520w seasonic 80/20 power supply

Would this video card work for me, I see it's a AMD chip f that matters

at that price range, a 6670 would do a better job

True. There is just one 6670 that really shines right now at $39.99 after mail-in rebate:

I hope the OP still have not order that 430. It will be a total rip-off.
