That monitor should be just fine and is a good quality monitor. You should be OK with that. You can either connect using HDMI or VGA so you have enough options regards connection.

That should be just fine. The comments on the Amazon page suggest that the refresh time of the screen might not be ideal for games, but that can be a subjective thing.

From a technical standpoint though, it'll work without issue.

i have a vga connection to my monitor and i think the sounds fine, if a sound is tinny it means not good quality and a bit quiet i think. I have a samsung monitor by the way

Tinny is what your mobile or poor earphones sound like, quiet and lacking any bass or clarity. Even the cheapest speakers should be better than most built in monitor speakers.
