Well does that monitor support HDMI? I contacted my nearest store and they said that the cheapest monitor with HDMI available (in their shop) is Dell S2220 for 8.3K :(

And btw this is for my friend, and he doesn't wanna go with the G620...Its either an I3 2nd Gen or the APU from AMD

He can go for 30K at the most...Can he go for APU and compromise on the GPU, and get a cheap one?

^^Could you explain why you're vehemently sticking on to a monitor with the HDMI port? Going to use it for a console? BTW with an APU your upgrade path is almost closed.


laborare est orare
If you wanna high Graphics processing power then get G620 + H61 + HD 6670 GDDR5 which offers better performance, both in terms of Processing Power + Graphics processing capability.

A5-3500 is a weak CPU and with AMD Llano series, the upgrade path is closed.

I m sticking onto the monitor with the HDMI ports, because my friend has a sound system, which he wants to use with this monitor. Ok I will recommend the G620 to him, if its better than the A5 3500 . Thanks for all your valuable suggestions.
