    Hello,

    I am starting my first build of a PC.

    Should I get the computer up and running with Windows 10 without the graphics card, then install the card later?

    Or should I finish building everything first, then start it up for the first time? I think i remember Cary Holzman saying in one of his videos, to get the computer running as basic as possible first.

    Thanks for reading

    That's what I do, start with the bare-bones basic first and get it stable. Now start adding one or two pieces at a time, get it stable, ...etc... until built.

    It somewhat depends on IF your new build has onchip video. Many processors do however high end ryzen and some intels do not have onchip video. Just because you see a video port on the motherboard does not mean you are going to have video. Just about all ryzen boards have an onboard video port however that is to support the bristol ridge APUs; install a ryzen and no video.

    Personally I install the video card however there is nothing wrong with getting it running/stable with onchip video. Up to you.

    It's an Intel Core i5 9600K 3.7Ghz on a Gigabyte z390 Aurus Pro Wifi mITX. I think I can run graphics off it first to see it's running OK?
