No CPU integrated graphics, will motherboard video outputs work?

Some chips, like i5-3550 apparently lack integrated graphics. However, every motherboard I can find has video outputs. So, (1) will the video outputs on the motherboard work (on their own) if the processor lacks integrated graphics, and (2) will a discrete graphics card enable the video outputs on the motherboard --OR-- (3) is it simply the case that the video outputs on the motherboard will not work when using a processor which lacks integrated graphics?
