  1. Since the R7-240 is basically the HD 6670, it doesn't appear you can according to this chart: http://www.cpu-world.com/info/AMD/Recommended_graphics_cards_for_AMD_dual-graphics.html
    Either way, you'd be money and performance ahead to idle the on-die GPU and invest in a faster discrete card anyway. The LLano should be able to keep up with some much faster cards. What is your budget for a gfx card?

    Get the power of two when you purchase an AMD A-Series Accelerated Processor (APU) based PC with an
    AMD Radeon™ DirectX® 11.2-capable discrete graphics card. Only AMD Radeon™ Dual Graphics combines two powerful Radeon™ DirectX 11.2-enabled graphics processors to provide the ultimate gaming performance boost when you need it. Experience gaming at higher resolutions with greater image quality and boost visual performance when you combine a Quad-Core AMD APU for desktops with the AMD Radeon™ HD graphics card.
    AMD's Accelerated Processing Units (APUs) integrate HD 6000, HD 7000, HD 8000 or R7 series graphics, that can work together with discrete Radeon graphics cards. When discrete and APU GPUs work in tandem, their combined performance is higher than performance of each individual discrete or APU graphics unit these both things show it can support ur need :D pick as solution if helped :D
