Can I add a discrete graphics card to a core processor W/ integrated graphics.

I have a core i3 3220 with a integrated Intel HD 2500 graphics. I was thinking of buying a discrete graphics card as 2500 is terrible for gaming. So, can I disable the HD 2500 and get a new graphics to install?

Update: It is a desktop.
