Hey all. I am building this computer for light business use. I am wanting to use the VGA cable to the normal computer monitor and then use the HDMI and run that to a TV  or second monitor that will have some videos playing all the time. I guess my questions are, one is everything compatible that I picked out. Second, am I missing anything... other then OS which I have already. And third, will I be able to slide things between monitors with just the VGA and HDMI on the MOBO and NOT have to buy a separate graphic card?

 

Thanks

Third question, you probably can but Intel's graphic drivers are miles behind AMD or Nvidia. I don't recommend Intel graphics for any use because generally drivers are quite poor.

 

Power supply is probably very low quality. Also SSD is highly recommended.

Because of better graphic drivers, yes. I have fought with Intel GPU drivers too much. And for basic tasks any modern CPU is fast enough.

Okay thanks for your help. I am trying to avoid getting a graphic card and I need at least a vga and a hdmi inputs. Also looking for a mobo with more then 2 sata connectors. But if I get a board that can handle an amd I would be better off? I didn't know that the cpu had anything to do with the graphics ability on the mother board.

Thanks for your help so far. Does anyone else have a second opinion? I always like to try and get multiple answers to try and help narrow it down. Nothing against drilling machine he's been tons of help so far

VGA+HDMI, 4 SATA connectors FM2+ motherboard http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128763

 

Integrated graphics controllers are nowadays integrated into CPU, not motherboard chipset. Motherboard display connectors can still make difference though. I also highly recommend SSD drive.

 

No problem with second opinion. Slight problem is that for basic light usage there is basically endless amount of valid choices.

awesome you saved tons of time for me researching trying to find a board. Will that CPU that you listed above work for that motherboard that you just posted? 

And yes i understand 100% on the SSD. I have SSD on my gaming PC. All I have is my windows and games on the SSD, and the rest of my memory on my HHD. I am building this computer for a small business that the guy is pretty much a family friend. Right now he is just wanting a better working computer then what he has and trying to keep it at low cost.  So Im not to worried about an SSD for him. He is a huge penny pincher and probably wont want that anyway.

That CPU is actually APU but yes, it will work.

 

OK, then HDD is just fine. That APU/CPU likes faster ram but outside gaming, difference is minimal.

 

Edit: Faster RAM is only two bucks more http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820104472

What is the difference in a CPU vs APU?

APU is just an AMD marketing term. For them it does help distinguish the A series "APUs" from the FX series "CPUs" without graphics.
 
A series are fine for a budget system, and offer better graphics than Intel. For performance on the AMD side, FX + discrete GPU is faster.

PSU with dual 80mm fans? Last time I had dual fan PSU was somewhere around 2002 or something. Better choice http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA4P03US3334

only thing im worried about is the case has included 3 fans. I am not sure how they are wired. if they have the 4 prong plugs or what? So im hoping this power supply has enough plugs for all those fans

You will be able to wire some fans to the three pin headers on your mobo, the rest you can use the molex plugs on the psu.
