It depends on the MOBO. Some, like some of the ASUS boards, will allow you to run both onboard video and GPU cards simultaneously.
For multiple monitor setups?
That's one reason. Also, I saw an ASUS YouTube video where, via some kind of software, the onboard graphics could be used to boost the GPU card graphics (I don't pretend to understand how that works).

For ATI/AMD cards, this is called Hybrid Crossfire: ATI Hybrid Graphics - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

It allows you to use the onboard chipset of certain motherboards to work with the discrete video card to boost performance. Because of design and functional changes, only certain boards would work with certain cards. As it is today, crossfire still limits the ability to pair cards together because of the same thing. new design changes etc.: AMD CrossFire

Nvidia also does this in roughly the same manner. Hybrid SLI technology
