I'd be surprised it its possible, Since I have a box of video cards 
(from a weak moment at an auction) my preference is to have a card 
installed "just in case." No keyboard, monitor or mouse though.

Note that serial ports are a diminishing commodity: laptops here (three 
of them) have none, recent (desktop) mobos have one.
