As far as I know, you cannot use the motherboard integrated graphics processor and an add-on graphics card at the same time.

I would like to connect a fourth monitor to the motherboard Dvi port

 

Sorry, had planned to answer this shortly after you posted your message but was hoping someone with more experience would step in.

 

I have in playing around, connected two monitors to my 760 and one to the on-board Intel HD Graphics on my ASRock Xtreme4 motherboard to see if it could be done.

 

It worked and I don't recall a significant FPS hit, although I'm sure there was at least a small one.

 

 

It also required adjusting some settings in the BIOS and there might have been a couple annoyances, but I think it was more with the Intel connected monitor not being as robust as the 760 connected monitors.  

 

I wsh I could give more definite answer, but it's been over a year ago and I was in the 'can it be done mode', so once I knew it could.. I deemed the information not important enough to retain.  :smile:

 

I would recommend doing some Internet searches if you're interested...
