Default quick question

ok so if you buy all of your computer parts exept your video card, but your mobo has built in graphics, can you install all those parts and install your OS and then once you buy your video card can you install it then, or do you just have to wait untill it all gets there to put it together? thanks in advance

You can build it all then add a better GPU later. It's just a normal upgrade then.

You can run it with onboard, yes. When you get the video card pop it in and install drivers.

^what they said
heres a tip. if you buy from nvidia, after you plug in the card and is booted up, i suggest you download the drivers from nvidia.com instead of using the disk because the drivers there are the latest and no need for extra driver updating(yes you can open ie/firefox/etc to dl the driver)
