This is for people who can't afford a GPU if you're looking for a GPU with this I recommend going used and pickup something like a GTX 970 or a 780, 780 TI If you want to smash 1080p benchmarks.

Can you post in some benchmarks for APU with Ryzen 2200G cause from what I know the are only good for 720 gaming(for new games). I have to build a PC for my little bro and the budget is quite less.

I was thinking to get a used AMD FX 8 core with 16GB DDR3 ram and a r9 280 for him (will add a brand new PSU to this build)

They can game on lower settings in newer games at 1080p. Some games like Doom run really nice even on higher settings on them. And you can always add a GPU later. The APU is cheaper than the normal CPU of the same grade some reason.

DO NOT BUY AN FX CHIP ANYMORE.

The 2200g is 90 bucks new and the CPU in it alone will be better than an FX. And buying DDR3 ram today is kinda dumb.

I will look into the APU though the thing is I am getting the FX PC cheap (around 220 USD) these are the complete specs


FX 8350 CPU

16 GB DDR3 RAM

Gigabyte mobo 970ADS3P

120GB SSD HDD

1 TB seagate 7200 RPM HDD

CM 650 PSU

Gigabyte Luxo10 case (without any fans)

GT 430 GPU

All this is for 220USD plus 90 USD for a 750Ti

I think if I go for a APU it will cost more ?

Buying the 750ti for 90 is dumb. You can get a 560 for $100 new and it will destroy the 750ti.

The rest is a good deal while it is low end I have to agree for that price its nice.

This woulda have been a bit more for better specs



The GPU I would not pay over $40 for.
