Hi, please suggest any other way(s) of connecting a DVI/HDMI/VGA monitor excluding usage of a separate PCIe x16 slot graphics card for mobo DZ68PL, as the mobo does not have built-in display/graphics/video card. USB 3.0 to VGA adapter? PCIe expansion adapter cards? PCIe enclosure?

Yea, the DZ68PL is a cost-reduced board design that does not support the processor-based graphics engine being exposed. This leaves you with only three sources for graphics (in order of performance): 

  1. A PCIe x16 graphics card.
  2. A PCIe x1 graphics card. Here's an example: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0B5B7J74M.
  3. A USB 3.0 graphics card. Here's an example: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B09MF4FDZH.

Hope this helps,
