  1. Why wouldn't you get a graphics card?
  2. No, neither the motherboard nor the CPU have graphics capabilities - the easiest way to tell is to look at the I/O ports of the motherboard, in the case of the AsRock 970 Extreme3, you notice there are no DVI, HDMI or even VGA outputs... nowhere to connect a monitor, that should be your first indication that a dedicated graphics card will be needed.
    Hope it helps
  3. Nope, no display outputs on the motherboard, not that the CPU has any integrated graphics in it.
    If your after just a display output, not gaming performance, this is the card to get.

  8. What are you using this build for? If you are really against a graphics card, get a trinity APU.

    but the cpu needs a 1.60 bios update i'm hoping the board will come on 1.60+
  10. That will work, but again, I ask what the purpose of this build is.

  13. Both of your latest builds would work. Personally, I'd go with the Intel build. When you've saved enough money, get a quality power supply and a discrete graphics card for gaming.
