Probably.  But , it would be nice to know which i3 and what motherboard, and what OS.

Gigabyte B360M H Intel Socket 1151 Coffee Lake Mirco would proberly be better as it has on board graphics.

But...  neither the i3-9100F or the i5-9400F provide graphics.

If you want onboard graphics, you must use the B360M H board with a processor that provides graphics.

Sounds like you need to think this hardware selection through a bit more.

I meant the b365m. B360 only supports up to 8th gen cpu's
