It looks to me like you can go either way. If you want to use the onboard ports, you need a processor that has graphics. If you want to use an add-on graphics card, fine, you can use a processor that does not have graphics. However, you will also not have access to the onboard ports.

BUT, you know the best place to ask about MSI motherboards? MSI. It is their board, they built it, they know what they support. Intel does not.

So if I choose intel core i5 9600KF (not integrated graphics) means the Graphic Card in MSI Z390 MPG GAMING PLUS will doesn't works?

As I said, MSI is very good at answering questions about their boards.

If you purchase the Intel Core i5-9600KF, then the graphics connectors on the back panel of your motherboard cannot be used. You must have an add-in graphics card in this case.

thank you …. yes you right … I got answer too from MSI

 

Regarding your concern, you can choose any of them to use. If you choose i5-9600KF, the onboard graphic cannot be used. Thanks!
