As your motherboard has no on-board graphics you need a graphics card. Take your pick:

If you wanted a low price video option then why did you buy a motherboard without integrated graphics.

You can either buy an add in graphics card or exchange the motherboard for one with on board (integrated) graphics. The integrated graphics route should be cheaper.

"if there is no other option accept graphics card then which graphics card is suitable for me in low budget?"

What type of graphics card do you need - general purpose? HTPC? gaming? They are all priced differently. And I suggest you get a decent power supply (SMPS). iBall power supplies suck.

"4 GB DDR3 1333MHz Transcend"

It will work, but it's the wrong RAM to pair up with the FX-8350. You should have got DDR3-1866.

When I was searching the configuration I could't imagine MOBO without integrated graphics and MOBO without VGA, DVI or HDMI port. I have checked all pros and cons of MOBO. But I forgot about LED connectivity to MOBO.

I'm not interested in gaming.

Now can U tell me which of the following Graphics card compatible with M5A97 EVO with price tags?

ASUS EAH4550/ EAH4670/ EAH6470/ EAH6570/ EAH6670

or any other Cards like AMD 6450/6570/6670 etc.....

DDR3 1866 or 1600 RAM was not available in the market at that time.........

plz guide me....

Any PCI Express graphics card should work with your configuration. As for prices, just check your local suppliers for prices in your country.

But in MOBO specification mentioned that CrossFireX technology support. Most of Graphics card of NVIDIA and other not specify CrossFireX support......

Can you suggest me any basic specific Graphics Card?

Forget about CrossFireX; you do not want to run dual graphics cards. Just pick the cheapest PCI Express card that you can find. Any will do as you are not interested in playing games.

I'm curious how you came up with this configuration? Why did you choose the fastest AMD CPU available & a motherboard that supports CrossFireX if you're not into gaming?

Regardless, here's a cheap video card: HIS Radeon HD5450 1GB DDR3 - 1955 INR

I'm sure you paid a lot of money for your other hardware so I will tell you this one more time - if you have an iBall power supply, I strongly suggest you replace it with a reliable name brand unit, otherwise you risk all your high priced hardware going up if a puff of smoke or ball of fire.

Here's a decent choice: Corsair Builder Series 600W Power Supply - 4120 INR
