Best GPU to pair with AMD A4 series ?

I saw a chart that showed which one to use but for the life of me I cannot find it now.

I see some really affordable cards but I don't want to get the wrong thing. I'm just trying to have a dual monitor setup, which the APU alone does not seem to be capable of.

You can spend $400 on a console and $400 on a cheap PC, or you can spend $800 to build your own and have the best of both worlds.

If you're running an A4 APU on a desktop, then you're probably on a seriously strict budget. You're most likely looking for a 6450, possibly a 6570 or R7 240.

Do you know which model of A4 you're using?

A4-4000

And yeah, this is my first self built computer, and I'm having to go through great lengths to make sure the parts I buy are delivered to me safely, so I'm not trying to throw a lot of money around. Once I get more experience and move to a better place, I'll be buying something much better. This is also just an HTPC, so it's not like I need the best, anyway.

If you're on an APU budget, I'd suggest just sticking with the integrated. That is what APUs are made for.
