Graphics adapters from different manufacturers

is it possible to use an HD 6990 for GPGPU applications, while at the same time the display is driven by an (on-board) graphics system from a different vendor? The on-board graphics chip is connected to the south bridge via PCI.

We want to use Windows 7, driver 11.8 and SDK 2.3.

Also, I have found that apparently a monitor must still be attached to the 6990 in order to make it work. For a rack-mounted server with multiple 6990s that's very impractical. Can someone from AMD give an authoritative statement about this issue?
