Im planning to build a budget pc:

CPU: R5 5600g
MOBO: Asus Prime b450m a 2
RAM: Xpg ddr4 2*8gb 3200mhz
SSD: Kingston Nvme m.2 500gb
PSU: Asus tuf 650watt power supply

Case: Silverstone, White, Mesh front, mAtx

I also want to upgrade to a good mid tier gfx card (better than the igpu) but I also need to cut costs somewhere... Where should i start and what should I do...

P.S. If any info is missing i will be pleased to tell...

What parts do you already own, if any?
The psu is what usually limits what graphics card you can support.
Here is a handy chart:

Graphics card pricing is currently in a state of flux, pending release of new amd, nvidia, and even intel products.

I might comment on the 5600G.
You are paying for integrated graphics which you are not planning on using.
Ryzen depends on fast ram for performance, 3200 speed really should be 3600 speed.
A direct intel competitor would be the i5-12400.
Single thread performance is important for games, and the 12400 excels there.

So what if, because of your opinion about r5 5600g, i change my whole build to:

CPU i5 12400
RAM 3200mhz cl16 xpg
MOBO Asus Prime b660m a
PSU Asus tuf 650w
SSD Kingston Nvme 500gb

What should/can i do now?
