Hi,
This is my first time building a pc, so far I have a coolermaster 431 plus case, and 8 gigs of ripjaw ram.
I plan on getting a fx-6100 and already have a radeon 4850. Thing is I still need onboard video because my monitor will occasionally refuse to work with the video card, so I have to get a micro board.
I want to get this board http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...scrollFullInfo
its a biostar 880. My case though, has front ports for headphones and usb, will that work with this board? Will all the other components work properly?

here the link to the case http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811119256

As long as both the monitor and video card are working properly then they will work with each other, it sounds like there is somethig wrong with the card if onboard video still works with the monitor, though it could be a problem with the computer setting the onboard as active on its own (thank you microsoft, Im assuming thats what you use)

 

You do not need to get a micro-ATX, you can get a standard ATX as well, either would fit in that case (regular ATX would allow more expansions later on, like RAM, more cards, etc)

As far as front USB and audio, yes they will work. Everything listed will work together.

thanks for the reply. The problem with the display is the monitor, it is a hanns-g that i got for like 100$, with the previous monitor this never happened but I have been dealing with it for more than a year now, its not a big deal as long as every few months i can switch to using the connector on the pc itself instead of the video card.

  Thats great to hear about the front stuff, I was curious becease all these boards seem to just have ports for the headphone and usb on the back.

That is very very strange.

 

Pretty much all motherboards have connections for front USB/headphones

if you look at the 3rd photo on the newegg page (birds eye view, directly above the board) on the left you see 3 red connectors (2x4 pins) the 2 next to each other are for front USB, and the one towards the top is the audio

 

is there any particular reason you want to go with a micro-ATX board?

Ahh...I see them, thanks for being so helpful. The reason for micro is that strange problem I have with the monitor, otherwise I would get a biostar ta970.

One more thing, is it true that a fx-6100 will not turbo on a 880 board?

I'm not sure about that, however, you don't get the full suite of FX CPU enhancements without the AMD 900 series chipsets.  The 900 series was designed with a few enhancements for the FX line.  If you really, really need on-board graphics but don't game much, the Trinity APU's could be an alternative.

 

You mentioned monitor issues, does turning the monitor on and off or unplugging it from the wall for a minute do anything?  How about restarting the PC?

I have a radeon 4850 so i'm not considering an apu. The monitor only acts up once a month or so, but when it does I have to plug it into the motherboard so it works, then after I turn it off plug it back to the video card and hope it works, when it does it works for a month or so. Doing this I must also leave the monitor on. I thought maybe this had something to do with the onboard not being disabled but I have vista and you are not supposed to need to do that anymore.

 I would try disabling it anyway but I am concerned that if I do I will go to use it and nothing would work and then I couldnt turn the onboard back on.
