Is it possible to have one monitor hooked up to my gpu (650 ti boost) and another monitor hooked up to my intel graphics for web browsing and system monitoring during gaming, or is the ti powerful enough to do both

4gb ram
i3 3220
650 ti boost

Your 650ti should be able to do that. But connecting it to the Intel graphics would free your GPU to completely focus on your game graphics and prevent any kind of loss of performance, however small it might be.

That all depends on your motherboard. While this is possible, it may not be possible with your exact motherboard. Some motherboards disable the onboard video when a graphics card is installed. So, try this first. Turn off your pc. Connect your monitors, one to your card and on to your motherboard. Boot up and start windows. If they are both on at this point, you're good. If only one I working, right click your desktop, click "change resolution", see if your second monitor shows up. If so, enable it as extended desktop.

How would I go about setting up the second display on my integrated graphics, What settings would I use and where would I set it up?
