  • Suppose I buy a CPU with no graphics integrated and have to wipe or reinstall windows

    I'm considering buying the E3 1230 to replace my CPU. You know how sometimes when you need to reinstall windows that the video card isn't usable until you reinstall it's driver?

    Well what happens when your CPU doesn't have its backup integrate graphics? Do mobos have them? I don't want to be in a situation where I'm reinstalling windows and I can't see anything because there is no backup graphics card to display anything.

    you'll be fine, windows has a basic display driver that works well enough to display windows until you can install the correct driver.

    integrated graphics in CPUs is relatively new

      It totally depends on the board. Some boards rely on dedicated IGPs and others on IGPs that rely on you having the proper CPU with a IGP processor on board. The first case has a GPU on board. The second case the GPU is on board the CPU. So if you fall into the second case, then you'll need a dedicated card otherwise you won't get any video output.
