What is your video card.


Thanks for your help!!! 

On each of these units I am using the video from the mother board which
is :

Base Board Information
        Manufacturer: ASUSTeK COMPUTER INC.
        Product Name: B150M-A/M.2
        Version: Rev X.0x
        Serial Number: 160983250602009
        Asset Tag: Default string
                Board is a hosting board
                Board is replaceable
        Location In Chassis: Default string
        Chassis Handle: 0x0003
        Type: Motherboard
        Contained Object Handles: 0

I was hoping that I did not need to put a video card in these units,
but this would certainly be a solution.
