Default Motherboard and Monitor

Since I don't really have the money right now to buy a good video card, I'm going for a integrated video motherboard, it also has a AGP slot, so I can install a video card later on (not too soon). Now my problem is that I don't know if the port where you connect the LCD monitor cable to the motherboard will work with the integrated video.

I havent bought the parts yet but this is what I'm looking for:

Monitor:

Motherboard
http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16813157024

PS: if you have an idea of another motherboard that aint too expensive, and has integrated video please post them too

I'd really appreciate you guys helping me

Thanks

Buy what you want and if it doesn't fit then just get a DVI>VGA adapter for a couple of bucks more.

edit> the board you have shown is for a vga type monitor<

I kinda understand what your saying, but I think this way the dvi cable will not fit in the adapter, because both are male.

Or the cable that comes from the monitor is female?

Sorry I'm confused.

The DVI coming from the mobo is always female...and so is the VGA
thus the plug from the LCD or VGA monitor must always be male. So you need the adapter that will convert the DVI plug from monitor to the male VGA plug on the mobo.
I posted all that were available to show that they are available and fairly reasonable...not so as to any particular one fitting your board because you may change your mind and get another type.
the one for that board and monitor that you depicted is:
