Does a motherboard have a graphics card?

Recommended Posts

I want to buy a motherboard and a CPU. i don't demand much from the comp or the resolution, it's 1366x768
I don't want to buy a graphics card and there is an Integrated Graphics Processor-Intel® HD Graphics support. do i need a CPU with a graphics card?
What does the chip on the motherboard, does it only connect the graphics card, whether it's in the CPU or stands alone, to the HDMI etc. connectors?
If i don't want to insert a separate graphics card, then, i understand, i have to buy a CPU with one inside, right?

Then *any* will do.

You can have a motherboard with support to a CPU that "includes" a GPU (a graphic processor unit), this is what is common, or have a motherboard which includes an embedded graphic card with a separate GPU, not unlike a video card, only soldered to the motherboard (these tend to be rare nowadays). 

As a matter of fact, if you don' t need particular speed of the CPU (it depends on your use), you could get away with an "embedded CPU" (and fanless) motherboard, saving quite a bit of money when compared to buying the motherboard+ the CPU + heatsink/fan, only as examples:
