Default Motherboard Question

I have been looking for a mobo for my gaming computer and there is a lot of mobos out there that don't have a port to hook up a monitor, so them type of mobos require a video card first off? If so will the computer be able to put out video before you can install the os? This is a brand new computer im putting together. Thanks for any help!!

TJ

Yes motherboards that don't have on board video will require a Video card of some kind.

Yes it will output video before the OS is installed. Motherboards have the Generic Drivers to operate the display.
