Thanks for looking.

I'm trying to find a low cost amd cpu with integrated gpu that can play play games like gta v and fortnite and stuff?

Any suggestions please.

Forgot to add, 1080 only [edit: I guess the OP means 1080p ? -- moderator]

Thanks.
 
Two stick of RAM for dual channel and try to aim for DDR4 3600 + CL 16 (for example: https://pcpartpicker.com/product/jBZzK8/gskill-ripjaws-v-16-gb-2-x-8-gb-ddr4-3600-memory-f4-3600c16d-16gvkc or https://pcpartpicker.com/product/njvqqs/crucial-ballistix-16-gb-2-x-8-gb-ddr4-3600-memory-bl2k8g36c16u4w) but always look at the motherboard QVL to see if the particular RAM is supported.

And you will have to turn down graphic settings to medium or low to get decent frames. But hey, thats without a discrete GPU!, so is not that bad.

My first gaming PC was a slop of parts Newegg decided to throw together, one of the things that they chose was an AMD APU, A10-7700K APU w/ Radeon R7 Graphics. I'm still using it as my CPU, looking to upgrade soon, but it looks like you can pick one up new from Amazon for $130. It shipped with a Battlefield 4 key and played it on max graphics at the time.

What is your budget?
Why the requirement of an AMD processor?
Do you already have parts, or are you looking at a new pc?

If you want to play fast action games, you will need a discrete gpu of some sort.
The $300 5700G is probably the most competent in that regard.
It is quite good from the cpu performance point of view.
But the graphics capability, while good for an apu is only at the level of a discrete GTX750ti which sells for $100 or so used.
The $200 5600G has integrated graphics on the level of a GT1030 card.
Integrated graphics from either AMD or intel can play games that do not involve fast action.
Sims, strategy and MMO types for example.
Past that, you are looking at the need for a more capable graphics card.
That may be an expensive proposition today if looking for new product.
Used is likely to be a better option on a budget.

Budget is cheap as possible.
I already have a amd board and some memory and everything else but with the gpu situation atm I'm not paying ridiculous prices for a graphics card.

It's for a kid that just wants to play gta v with mods. The system currently has a gt210 1gb that just about manages roblox!

Thanks.

What about a 1050ti but the mini version. I had the 1050ti windforce oc before but I'm not sure how a normal clocked mini card would compare? Thanks.

What is the make/model of the motherboard you already have?
Not all amd processors will be compatible.
Do you already have some ram?
Ryzen depends on fast ram for performance.

Do you have a case already?
Perhaps it would be best to list the make/model of what you already have.
What is the need for a mini gpu card? Perhaps a small case?

The performance of mini cards is not usually any issue at all.

Games such as GTAV may be more cpu limited than graphics limited.
If you can find a GTX1050ti at a reasonable price, go for it.
They are currently selling for $175-$200 used on ebay.

Can you be more specific about your budget? Whether something can play or not play specific games isn't a binary yes/no answer; there are differing levels of acceptability at most price points. You'll always do better with a specific budget in mind or at least some kind of smallish range. And detailing what hardware you already have and are willing to re-use is also necessary. And that includes exact PSU since GPU discussion is possible.

It currently has a ryzen 3 2300x
Gigabyte a320m
8gb cheap ram bit I have some redundant 3600 memory, maybe it will run at 3000 with the 2300x.
Asus geforce gt 210 1g
250gb nvme ssd
1tb hdd
Hyperx 500w psu
Midi atx case

The reason I was looking at the mini 1050ti is I've seen them for £100 whereas the normal ones are £200 on ebay.

Frame rate isn't really gonna be an issue if It can achieve 30fps at least also graphics settings will be ok on low.

Thanks.

£150

Your GT210 is only a display adapter, it has no capability for fast action games.
Your cpu is decent for what it is.
If you can snag a mini 1050ti for £100 that would be a very good gaming upgrade.

There is always a limiting factor in game performance. Usually cpu or gpu.
With a GTX 1050ti of any kind you will swing that limiting factor from graphics to your cpu.

Ok I'll get the 1050

Thanks.
