Assuming the board works you looking for a i5-9600t or i7 9700t? I have a few in older dell workstations. Honestly though the 5600g Amd has a decient gpu integrated and cheaper than a 5600x in general. I would bet a good 1030 gt with ddr5 is upwards of $130, 970 somewhere above that.... and unreasonable unless you can find msrp new card but even those are $$$$ Per reviews avoid the 6500xt AMD. Your best bet if wanting a gaming pc might be a laptop with a descriet gpu.

Thanks for the thought out post. Ya I was thinking something similar about the laptop idea… but I have multiple desktops though with no good video cards. What a pickle

also im thinking if i got a ryzen 3600+mobo i could run the game an it might be cheaper than buying a video card.
I'm not following. You would still need a GPU with the Ryzen as well. Did you mean one of the "G" varients?
If you already have the Intel MB, adding a 8600/8700/9600/9700/9900 would be you cheapest option and would game just as well as the 3600

Yes, From just popping over to YouTube I see that the 3200g can run the game pretty playable as well as the other chip pointed out 5600g without a video card.

So I think then you best option would be the affordable CPU option from the list (or even cheaper if you want to dip into the 4 core options) I gave you barring you are sure your MB works, then grabbing a low cost GPU such as a HD 7850/7870/7950/7970 or R9-270/280/285 or a R9290(x)+ or a GTX-660/670/770/780/960/970 and you will be miles better then any AMD "G" cpu and won't have to rely on grabbing expensive fast RAM required to get much the most out of it. Literally any 2133 MHz or higher will do fine on the Intel rig.

Ya looking around for both a cpu and video card is still gonna run at least $300. Thank you for the option/advice left above

You can get both for $200. I don't see that being any where as expensive as a AMD APU plus MB plus fast Ram and will run all titles far superior.
Or keep your 4770 and buy the cheapest GPU off the list I gave you and you will still be miles ahead an AMD APU.
