Not an APU and you don't have a GPU so how to expect this thing to work?

What is an APU? The Mobo has an integrated ATI Radeon HD 3000 graphics card. I didn't think I'd need a second GPU on the system.

So it does, didn't even bother to look at the Mobo, sorry about that. An APU is pretty much just a CPU with integrated graphics, most laptops have one.
