Apologies for 'basic' question but I would like confirmation before buying something (cpu).  I have a gigabyte Z390 UD (not sure which rev) motherboard that I intend to put in a i5 8400 cpu that has onboard graphics.  Is it as simple as inserting the cpu and a graphics output will be available from the rear hdmi port? (My monitor only has vga i/p so I will have to also buy a hdmi/vga adapter.  I am a non gamer so not worried about loss of hdmi quality).
