Okay, this will be my first time building a PC and I've selected a few parts and was wondering would it work.

Motherboard - Asus M4A89GTD Pro/Usb3
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681...

CPU - AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681...

Memory - G.Skill Ripjaws 2x2GB DDR3-1600 PC3-12800 (I actually have these with me)

GPU - Sapphire Radeon 6850/6870 (I do intend to get either later down the road for hybrid crossfire so relying on the integrated video chipset for now)

PSU - Seasonic M12II 520W Modular PSU

This is all I have for now and maybe I'll salvage a HDD or SSD from somewhere.

Any opinions and advices? Thanks Guys.

That is all compatible and quality parts. The HD68xx will not work with the onboard in Hybrid CF, only low end cards will do that at a lot less performance than the HD68xx.

If I do get it, would I be able to disable the integrated GPU and put a card in?

Yes using a discrete card in that board will be no problem. Most newer (if not all) automatically disable the integrated when discrete card is detected.
