I'm looking at getting this motherboard bundle, and I'm wondering if I even need a Video Card for it.

there is an integrated video card on that motherboard, but it looks like the only output is HDMI. so if your monitor only supports VGA or DVI-D your just plain out of luck. But if your monitor has an HDMI input, then your fine. Of course, for maximum performance, I would recomend a dedicated video card, but if your only using it for common around the house things like surfing the web or watching movies, the integrated will do you fine provided you have an HDMI enabled monitor/TV.

I think that board comes with an HDMI to DVI adapter. I don't know if it will work with a VGA monitor though (not that there are many left now).

I'm just trying to find a way to shave some money of the computer I'm building. I will be playing some games on it, but nothing beyond Mass Effect and Left 4 Dead right away. Plus, I'll be getting a new monitor too, so one less thing.

well, it should be able to do some basic gaming. Its not going to perform anywhere close to where it would with a dedicated card, but most games should at least be playable with that setup. I can certainly understand the budgeting money part, thats how I built my computer-one part at a time. :D
