    Default ASUS B450M-A video mystery

    This seems like such a n00b question, but I'm stuck!
    I have a new PC under construction, with the mobo in the title.
    It has a d-sub connector, I presume for onboard video, but it will only boot if I install a video card.
    I can't find anything on the BIOS setup to select on-board video.
    So am I stuck with a video card, or am I missing something obvious?

    that cpu does not have integrated graphics, so you will need an video card.

    To add to the above only ryzen APUs have built in graphics and the connectors are on the motherboard to support those. They tend to have a G for graphics on the end of the name such as 3200G, 3400g

    I had to do something Similar a few weeks back, was building a gaming machine, using Intel CPU's, Customer wanted i7 CPU, not many available, Had a choice of i7-11700F or i7-11700.

    The i7-11700F Was cheaper because the F means no integrated Graphics, and since Graphic cards were being used it was the better option.
