I know this a dumb question, but I just want to hear other people's opinion about it.

Is it fine to use a Ryzen 3 1200 paired with a GTX 1650 SUPER for now then upgrade to a Ryzen 5 2600 or 3600 after 5 months?

Found a Asrock Fatal1ty X370 Gaming X Motherboard from where I'm from priced at around $65. Unfortunately, they have no way of updating its BIOS so I'm unable to pair it with a R5 2600. I tried looking for a R5 1600(bnew), but to no avail. Found 2nd hand ones but they were priced around $120 so it was not really that attractive within my budget. After some time, I found a R3 1200 worth around $50 used(I know. The prices of 2nd hand hardware from where I'm from is insane).

My budget is already restrained. Ive come to understood how impractical this purchase is, but there's no turning back on my motherboard purchase since I got it on a clearance sale. xd

Going back to my question, is pairing a R3 1200 with a GTX 1650 Super bearable? Will upgrade the CPU after 3-5 months once I've saved up some money. I just want my build to be future-proof. Thanks!

Yes that would actually be a good combo. Not telling you not to upgrade but unless you are going to upgrade your video card I would go with the r 1200 and just enjoy gaming and save money and upgrade both video card and cpu at the same time. The R 1200 & 1650 are about on par with each other. I have a system with a ryzen 2200g & gtx 1660 ti and I am cpu bound. Hope that helps.
