Choice between two configurations for a media pc

So, I'm planning to build a media PC for my home, and I have two options in mind. A Ryzen 5 3400g with the stock Vega 11 iGPU, or a Ryzen 3100 with a GT 1030(GDDR5 2GB edition). In my country these two configs cost the same(about 14000 INR). Which one should I opt for? The build will be mATX, so size isn't much of a constraint. The 3100 combo will have more net performance, but I was wondering if the increased power draw(CPU+dGPU vs APU) would be worth it.

Thanks for your help!

My bet would be on the 3400g. Afaik the Vega 11 iGPU is quite a bit better than a GT 1030.

The GT 1030 + ryzen 3 3100 is a better choice, it will perform similarly if not slightly better than the vega 11 on the 3400g, but you also get a faster cpu on the zen2 architecture.
