I've been watching videos, and it's gotten me a little confused. Some say it's not mandatory to buy a graphics card, and some say it is. My build is not meant for gaming or anything. More about : graphics card Xlerator December 7, 2012 12:39:59 AM It's not mandatory because your cpu comes with integrated graphics and your not using it for gaming. Get this cheaper because there is a $20 rebate Original Price 59.99 - $20 Rebate=$39.99 Also Asus makes better quality and reliability mobo. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... zaxon December 7, 2012 12:47:18 AM Thanks! But the socket for that is FM1. The cpu I"m getting is FM2. Does it matteR?

Stick with your original set up. I put MSI on the same level as Gigabyte (about 1 step below ASUS) and I've never had a problem with Gigabyte boards. -Wolf sends zaxon December 7, 2012 2:09:25 AM Best answer selected by zaxon.
