Mobo without integrated graphics for better price?

Hey guys, are there mobo's (or a line of mobos) that don't have integrated graphics on them so they are cheaper, but still GOOD like able to OC and what nots? It seems like a waste of money for most of us to be paying for features we won't even need...

Modern motherboards don't come with integrated GPUs anymore. Certain CPUs come with on-die GPUs though. Intel's kinda weird about their GPU-less SKUs though: the Sandy Bridge 2550k could overclock and sold at a premium over the 2500k; the Ivy Bridge 3350P could not overclock and is one of their more affordable i5s.

AMD's a bit simpler: A-series chips have GPUs. The rest don't. Everything can overclock.

Does MY mobo have integrated graphics?

Nope. Your 4670k has a GPU (Intel HD4600) on it, though.

Wow! Thanks for schooling me! I believe, if I remember correctly, I choose this CPU because it could support dual-monitors and OC. :)

I went to the intel website and "compared" them, knocking out one after another until one remained...lol
