Thx for the help guys!
You connect your monitor there and you're done. You don't need an extra video card.
Graphics cards are normally more powerful than the graphics built into some motherboards. But for chess that extra graphics power is completely wasted. So if you are building a deshtop purely for chess, find a motherboard with the graphics built in. You will save money.
The integrated graphics are notoriously, unbelievably slow. Maybe you really will only use the system for chess, but the moment you do anything graphics intensive it will be slow.
For example the 9800gt is only $ 80.
I play chess against the computer once in a while, but its only 1 of 100 games I have.
But more importantly my question is, what is your setup?
You haven't given any info on what cpu you are running , motherboard , nada?

In the next couple of weeks I will be ready to buy the Motherboard, Ram, Graphic Card (inexpensive) and the Cpu. For the CPU I wish I could get maybe this http://www.pcmag.com/article2/c/0,2817,2382884,00.asp. Or other powerfull intel CPU. So, in your opinion, I still have to buy a graphic card?, when you say inexpensive, besides the low price, what are the features that I have to get from that inexpensive graphic card. Can you show me an example for that graphic card?
Yeah! I would and that would depend on the mobo and the cpu!
and I bought the 3 TB for the use of complete Nalimov TB.
Well maybe this motherboard http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131801 or this one http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0061XSBZ6/?tag=hyprod-20&hvadid=15722889819&hvpos=1o3&hvexid=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=569195693487999598&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&ref=asc_df_B0061XSBZ6

I'm not saying that this is the graphic card -something like it - but, if you are certain you are not going to do ANY gaming - just chess!
On the x3930K - I have a MSI N670GTX-PM2D2GD5/OC GeForce GTX 670 2GB 256-bit.
But I do photography and love to play some demanding games when I get the chance.
I had for years a MSI 9600T OC 256 bit 512MB that still works great - but, I've grown out of.
> But, what happens if I play other games.
They will play slowly on their frame rate if they are 3D, they will skip frames if they are fast passed, or look sluggish on screen redraws (flash games.) Others will play at full speed but will show graphics glitches (say, characters enters in a house with blinking blue walls that were meant to be grey, and not blink.)
Some modern games will not play at all (they need stuff like pixel shader, etc.)
Otherwise, old games or non-intensive games will play fine. So you can play Minesweeper or even OpenTTD without problems.
" Need for speed" will not be the same experience with a $60 dollar card. Nor would I recommend Mass effect 2-3 or Crysis - Black Ops or other first person shooter games- Bioshock et al to be played on a $60 card you are going to get a $60 dollar experience. But if all you want is a $60 experience then go for it. It will most certainly not be the same as it would if you played the game on a decent card. The enhanced graphics and frame rates make the game flow smoothly and give a more rewarding gaming experience.
I would suggest that if you think you might get into gaming at all go with at the very least a 5 series card. The 4 series are dated.
> The enhanced graphics and frame rates
$60 card should give the same framerate, as actually available memory is more important for that, and here the OP will have plenty.
So it'll all be about the graphics, less detail, less special effects, less realism, more pixelation, etc.
However, I'm from the generation that thinks graphics a good game do not make, it's all about the game-play, immersion, and design. A game will look as a top end game looked 5 years ago, and back then people were having a lot of fun with those games.
Also, your game with $200 card looks like crap when compared to a game from 2017, but it's just as fun.
This is mostly about the placebo effect, like a chocolate that costs $1 and one that costs $20, people will go for the latter if they can afford it, in reality it's nowhere close to tasting 20 times better, it may even taste worse.
This is a picture of the best platformer you can play:
And it'll run at full speed in an integrated card. The one on the right isn't better:
Not even the one on the right is better:
Because the games aren't about the graphics.
I've actually read reviews about players complaining how game developers have focused on adding polygons on their games, to have more crisp and realistic graphics, but leaving what makes a game fun unattended and ending with a crappy game.
If the game is boring, no graphics card on earth will make it fun.
If the game is good, it'll be fun even if it looks like this:
(picture of a top selling game from the top selling console)
> However, I'm from the generation that thinks graphics a good game do not make
Again, it depends on what you are willing to settle for - If this is what you like and are used to-that's cool. I certainly wouldn't settle for it. But then I wouldn't be playing the types of games you are illustrating here.
> The best games aren't about being wooed by the graphics.
Talking about good games, I recommend you this:
> Watched the video. It looks very cool, and also, I think a $60 video card would hold it fine
Yes, In fact any graphic card with pixel shader 3.0 support can run the game without problems. I think the game is free now for PC, (it was originally commercial for Xbox) but I am not sure. If it's free I can upload it to mediafire so you can download it.
Another game you can test it's ''Slender''. This game it's free, very short and with a simple goal. You need to find ''8 notes''. But you're alone in a forest at night with only a lantern that has a limited battery. Each time you take some note things becomes more difficult. The ''slenderman'' appears you time to time. To survive: don't look at him. It's really very creepy if you play it with high volume and in the night alone.
