GPU - Is it needed?
Yes, as 3600 would not render display without discrete GPU.

Given your requirements, I do not think you need any powerful GPU. Even ancient GT710 would suffice and cost about 3-3.5K.

I think, Ryzen 4000 series APUs will suffice your needs better but they are atleast couple of months away.

Thank you bssunilreddy & vyral_143
Another basic question:
Asrock B450 Pro 4 has a HDMI out. So does GT710 and GT1030.
Can these GPU drive a display from the motherboard's HDMI out?

Few other queries:
* What's a good APU in the same price range as Ryzen 5 3600? Either AMD or intel will do!
* How reliable are the mdcomputers or primeabgb w.r.t online buying?
* Any recommended shop in Bangalore (Whitefield/mahadevpura/KRPuram and around)?

I doubt about this could happen. I mean you have to connect HDMI of GPU.


* What's a good APU in the same price range as Ryzen 5 3600?
One of Ryzen 4000 series (possibly Ryzen 5 4400G as per rumours) APUs will be having performance similar to Ryzen 5 3600 along with iGPU. This is because generally APU lags one gen behind CPU in performance. New APUs would be out in a week mostly and go on sale in July.
