I am hoping to build 3 computers like this one in this video https://youtu.be/cZFpjWcSpoQ for my family members.

But I already have 27 inch 2560 x 1440 monitors for them, will the 3200g be enough?

2) What if they want to upgrade to 4k monitors? Would I have to build them something else?

3) Also, I am unclear about the power supply he's using in that HTPC case, in the description where it says matx build option, there is a 500w power supply with the same HTPC case, how does that 500w PSU fit inside the htpc case?

4) Does anyone know of similar if not better build quality as this HTPC case:


or is that the best I can get for $50?
I can only answer to questions 1 and 2.
Yes, the 3200g will be fine @ 1440p and 4K for general use. Windows 10 usage, chrome, streaming, etc will be fine. Just don't try to do anything graphic intense about 720p. Older games like 5+ years old should be alright @ 1080p mixed settings but don't expect to play Monster Hunter World at 4K maxed out.

Just make sure you keep the graphics drivers up to date as well as have the system properly cooled. If my little Intel NUC can display 4K HDR, 3200g can no problems.
