Something like this should do fine
Simialr x86 power but AMD has better graphics power (The Intel HD only has 6 shader cores which means the grpahics rendering even for webpages is epicly slow)

What do you mean for casual gaming? What games do you have in mind?

You can take your pick.
The G530 is a superior compute cpu, it's passmark number is 2201; the A4-3300 is 1603.

On the other hand, the graphics capability for gaming of the a4 3300 is superior.
Either can handle normal stuff and HD movie playback just fine.
Either is ok for casual games that are not fast action shooter type games.
