I have a10 9700, im planning to buy rx 560 4gb. Does my a10 9700 can handle rx 560 without bottleneck?
And i have 900p monitor, can i play AAA games smoothly? What will be the expected fps though?

I cant decide which one to buy first. Should i go for R5 2400g? Rather than going to rx 560?

You'd have to be more specific do you have a budget to get a ryzen 3 CPU?
Yes. But i cant buy both so i cant decide which one to buy first. What do you think should i go first? Since my mobo is biostar a320mh pro it is compatible with ryzen cpu's

Yes, a platform upgrade is needed by this point. Those are the old FM1 or FM2 if I recall. Still have a Llano A6 3650 based build myself in service, though rarely. Only used as a Blu-ray player and streamer though. These are from 2011 or so.

Your board has bios support, for even 3rd gen Ryzen 5 and 7. Since you are low on budget, the easy option would be a Ryzen 5 1600. 6c/12t is the sweet spot, right now, for AAA titles. Pair that with an RX 570, and you would have a solid budget 1080p capable rig. An R5 1400 would work too, if you can find a super good deal, on a used one. Do you happen to live near a microcenter? They have been selling the 1600 for $80.

My bad. I didn't look into things far enough. Didn't realize your CPU is indeed AM4. That said, your current CPU isn't Zen based, its older tech compatible with newer AM4 socket. 900P isn't to demanding, but you won't be maxing AAA titles with 9700 and RX 560. You CPU would be limiting factor there.

Another factor to note is that, at least if you're in the US, the RX 570 4GB is generally around the same price as the RX 560, but performs far better.

There are 2 or 3 RX 560 models that are SLIGHTLY cheaper than the cheapest RX 570, but it's still not worth it to buy an RX 560.

But i cant decide which one to buy first, is it ok to go with r5 2400g? Since it takes time before i can get a 570 or 580

Should i go to rx560 just r5 2400g? Ive been planning an upgrade but i cant buy both since im planning pair with rx570
 
The 2400G would be quite an improvement. Bought a 2200G/B450 combo and put together for a family member. Quite fast for what AMD would consider "entry level". Plus includes decent GPU based on Vega internally it's rather impressive if you check out some reviews. 2400G is even better and great for the $.
