Default integrated vga or not

Just a quick question, is it generally better to have an independent graphics card to the mobo or not?

Most definitely. Onboard video tends to be pure crap as far as gaming.

Gaming isn't my concern at all, I am just looking at it from a reliability and overall system perspective
