Question about gpu installation during a new build

I've built two computers over the past 4 years, and on both of them I installed the gpu before the initial boot up (can't remember if it took an additional step to actually make the gpu the active video source, but I'm fairly sure I had the monitor plugged into the gpu initially both times). I'm planning on another build with a z87 setup and a gtx 770 card, and was curious if I should take the same approach this time, or if I should perform the initial boot up and setup using the integrated graphics from the cpu and then install the graphics card once it's set up for everything else.

Thanks in advance!
