There's a whole world of difference between 'rendered' and 'processed

- the page is processed top to bottom (baring any branching in your php)
- and generally rendered from top to bottom - some parts being rendered
after as the missing components (images etc) are loaded.

- in short - yes you can - so long as the pconnect happens before you select
in the program 'flow' :)
