Sure, you can plug an HDMI cable directly into your brain

It would boot, and you'd probably see the splash screen where you can enter the BIOS, then it would load the operating system but you wouldn't see anything.

You can test this by building a machine with a LGA 2011 CPU and no graphics card, then see what happens.

If there's no GPU, not even integrated, where do you think you'll be plugging in your monitor?

If there is no video solution of any kind (discrete or on-board/on-die), then it's not possible to get a display. And like another person mentioned, how are you going to hook up a monitor if there's no connector? If there was a connector, then there would be a video card present.

lots of mobo's have an integrated card, but without even that then no.

Most computers will not even pass POST if there is no video card whatsoever.
