ASUS PRIME Z270-A LGA1151 DDR4 DP HDMI DVI M.2 USB 3.1 Z270 ATX Motherboard

Traded some work for this board,now going to get a I7 7700K and upgrade my 10 year old system. No gaming just internet surfing,use office 2016 a lot,and some dvd copying.Should I get a video card for this setup o just use the unboard video? Would it run any faster with a video card compared to the onboard video?
Thanks for any input.

  1. Get a GTX 1050.
  2. Thanks Blackbird, can I ask what the benefits is over onboard Video? Just trying to understand more about video cards.
  3. Using a dedicated video card will take the stress away from the integrated GPU. It helps motherboard power delivery to run cooler, which is useful on boards like yours that have smaller heatsinks on the power delivery systems.

    May I ask why you need an i7 if all you're going to be doing is office work and internet surfing?
  4. I Thinking it a over kill too, Looking for something to last many years and run fast. Using a Q6600 now and hate waiting for programs to open and 1.3 min boots
