Depending on what games you want to play on I would actually split your 200 dollars between a new cpu and gpu. A new Ryzen 1600 costs about 100 dollars leaving you probably enough to pick up a rx 570 maybe even a used 580 if you shopped around. Dont think that athlon will pair well with a stand alone 200 dollar gpu imo.

Ok. Thank you for the advice. I think I will save up a little more money just to be safe.

The only pc game I really play is American Truck Simulator and Nascar 2003.
