Default barebone system question

planning on buying http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...Tab=0&NoMapp=0...

I have a question about this though.. in the description it says "extreme graphics" and things like that, but i see no graphics card.. i am planning on buying a video card a few weeks after i buy this, but will I be able to use the computer before then, or will there be no video?

Its probably just got intigrated graphics. And that means that you will be able to use it, just not play too many kick-ass games. Although, if you plan on getting a card, that sounds like a great little system.

But to answer your question, its gonna be fully functional.

That's a pretty good barebone system. I don't see extreme graphics in there. You must be mistaken. It is SLi ready with 2 PCI-e x16 graphic ports.

yea well im buying that barebone with 2GB ram, and then im buying http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814150140 in a couple weeks.

EDIT---

"Socket 939 Shocker!
Big, Brawny Barebone For Extreme Systems.
Here’s your entrée to breathtaking power, blistering speed, astonishing graphics and stunning multimedia. A barebone so extreme that we don’t recommend it for the faint of heart."

SRRY it said "astonishing graphics" not extreme

(thats why i was confused)

It does say extreme in there, but used in another way. What tipped me off was that it's an AMD system and they don't use "Intel Extreme Graphics".

A computer with that kind of motherboard does not use integrated graphics. It's too good for it. You'll have to buy a separate video card. I will bet you like $1,000 right now that it doesn't have integrated graphics. THat's just how sure I am.

For real? I thought that they had to at least make the computer usable.

It depends on the motherboard used. Some of them have cheaper motherboards in there in which it uses integrated graphics. That particular barebone system has a motherboard in there that most of us on here would like to have. It's a power system ready for gaming. It could use a RAM upgrade though.
