Motherboard Specifications

I have 2 questions about the specs of the mother board above:
  1. Does the motherboard support dual monitor (1 VGA + 1 DVI)?
  2. How much memory does the built-in video card have?

    1.  Yes, it does.  The board itself has both a VGA and DVI port for a monitor connected to each.
    2.  I cannot see anything "concrete" for this board.  Newegg says it has no onboard graphics, but seeing as how it has onboard video ports, I can't see how that would true.  This board has an Intel H55 chipset, which supports processors that have graphics ON the processor.  It is also not real clear how much memory exactly, but below seems to indicate up to 1.7GB can be allocated to graphics (Intel HD Graphics):

    You should be able to allocate memory to the graphics cards through the BIOS, so it really depends on how much RAM you are willing to take away from the system.

    The motherboard does NOT have integrated graphics.    It has the H55 chipset, which provides support for the on-chip graphics on certain Intel CPU's.    If you use one of those CPUs, the video is automatically routed to the video connectors on the motherboard.

    Note, however, that if you want to use the on-chip graphics, you must not use memory with speeds above DDR3-1333.

    Yes the boad can support 2 screens
    D-SUB with Max. Resolution : 2048 X 1536 @75Hz  <-  the one with the blueish part
    DVI with Max. Resolution : 1920 X 1200 @60Hz <- the one with the whitish part

    As for memory:
    if running windows 32bit you can only put in :
    2x 2GIG ram modules, because of the 4gb limit

    if running windows 64bit you can only put in:
    2x 4GIG ram modules, because of the boards limitations
