I have purchased a Ryzen 5 2600 CPU and Asus Prime A320M-K motherboard. I wss informed by my seller that I would compulsarily need Graphic Card with this CPU, so I purchased MSI Geforce GTX 1650 Ventus XS edition. I was planning to purchase a secondary monitor, however my seller informed me that I can only use the ports on my GPU (which only had 1 HDMI port which is already exausted by my primary monitor).

Is that true that I cannot use the HDMI or VGA ports on my motherboard and can only use the ports on my GPU in this configuration?


Yes, you'll have to use the ports on your GPU. Your card has a display port and a DVI port as well. So if you get a second monitor, get one that has one of those ports. If you happen to get one that doesn't you can buy a cable that is display port to HDMI, or whatever combination you may end up with.
