Do I need to update both of my graphics cards?

Question by Steve: Do I need to update both of my graphics cards?
I am going to be building my first computer soon. Here is my build:

ASUS P8Z77-V LK LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS

CORSAIR HX Series HX750 750W ATX12V 2.3 / EPS12V 2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

My processor comes with an integrated intel graphics card. Should I plug my displays into the integrated graphics or the amd radeon? Also, do I need to update the drivers for the intel card too?
And I’m curious, how can a processor come with an integrated card? The motherboard is where the ports have to be located so how does that work? If anyone can answer any of these questions that would be great =)

Answer by Whatevers
1. For first boot, you might want to use the integrated graphics, but just long enough to disable it and switch to the PCI-Express card. It may not be automatic.

2. That I don’t know, but you might as well.

3. Because the processor connects to the motherboard, and the motherboard is connected to the point. Same as your graphics card, really. I’d bother with the details of physical construction, but I doubt you care.

    Whatever….’s answer is correct.

    I shall expand on the Intel CPU graphics query.

    Offers up to 5GT/s for fast access to peripheral devices and networking with up to 8 PCI Express 2.0 x1 ports, configurable as x2 and x4 depending on motherboard designs.

    It does not actually have a graphics card built-in.

    Here is the link to the CPU specs:
