If you read the instructions, you only need one. And it has to be the one on the GPU.

Whether you're able to display to the Rift with your GPU and to your monitor with the motherboard, that entirely depends on your motherboard.

If you plug the monitor into the motherboard, it's running off the integrated graphics. First off, that may actually be disabled with a graphics card installed (depends on your motherboard), and secondly it would ruin performance in non-VR games.

I'd recommend getting an adapter so you can plug the monitor into eg. a Displayport output on the graphics card.
