PC hardware--CPU & Motherboard & RAM/Intel 1150 motherboards doesnot support graphics card????


Does Intel motherboards with 1150 socket support on board graphics?

Some processors have built-in graphics controllers on the processor itself, so if the model(s) you are looking at don't have on-board graphics, it is either expecting a processor with an on-CPU graphics controller, or it is specifically a motherboard built to run only with an add-on graphics card. If the motherboard you are looking at has VGA and/or DVI ports, it already has a graphics controller on the board, even if there are no specs that directly say so.

On the flip side, every motherboard supports an add-on graphics card/controller as long as it has either an AGP slot (old motherboards) or a PCI-e slot (newer motherboards).

Hope this helps, have a great day!

Many, many years of experience working with the hardware components of many types of computers including desktops, laptops, kiosk computers, and even running Windows 3.1, 95, and 98 on the PSP (Sony PlayStation Portable). I've replaced capacitors on desktop motherboards making them working like new again with a high success rate. This is my hobby/job every day.
