Question IGp + 2 Dedicated GPU Card

Is that possiable, to have a IGP enable,
PCIe GPU cards enable all to gather ?
MB is GA 890GP A UD3H and two cards (No being used in CrossFire) are ATi 5850 1 GB cards ?

IGP for DeskTop usage (Blu Ray DvD, HD DvD, other Hi Def content,WEB, Email, U Tube etc etc)
and other dedicated GPU do mining

IGP is working fine along 5850 + 5850
and I can also do a CrossFire two 5850 and disable the IGP

but you can also keep the IGP if you want to do some multitasking, like folding on the crossfire and you don't want any lag while browsing or watching movies
