Can I use these in the same desktop?

I'm sure the answer to this question is somewhere on the forum but since I can't find it, here's the question.

 

I am looking to build a new pc but have reached a crossroads where the cpu is concerned. I can get a better, cheaper cpu (on paper) but it comes with integrated graphics or I can get a slightly more expensive but slightly less powerful (on paper) cpu without integrated graphics. I plan on using a dedicated graphics card in the machine so the integrated graphics doesn't bother me much but my question is, can I put a dedicated graphics card in the same machine that already has integrated graphics or do I have to go with the none integrated graphics solution for stability and ease of use

 

The computer will be used for both gaming and productivity. 

It doesn't matter if your cpu has intergrated graphics or not. If it does it gets disabled by default when you put in an external one. Unless you want otherwise.
