Hey guys
I wanted to know if i get a gt 1030 with a ryzen 5 2600 will there be any bottlenecks. Iam cheapening on the gpu (although I will use the pc for gaming) because I will play games like fortnite ,rainbow six seige,rocket league and these games will work fine on the 1030. Also I will change the gt 1030 when prices go down and get a 1070 or so rather than getting now a 1060. So let me know is this a good idea since i don't want play any AAA games now and save budget to get something better in the future.

That's unfortunate so should i just play on 720p highest settings in every game and everything will be good or quality will be bad?

I would just play at whatever setting makes it smooth and still looks good.. so maybe you have to turn it down a little.. normally its not that big of a deal / difference. like I have a 4K screen and I have to put the scalling down a bit to get the max settings in the games I play because its such a large number of pixels.. didn't have that when I had the 1080P screen..

Why don't you just get the 2400G since it comes with Vega 11 iGPU and performs the same as the 1030? It'll save you quite a bit of cash and you'll be able to game around 720P until you can save up for a much better GPU.

The issue with b350 boards is that they dont natively support the ryzen 2400g unless the bios has been updated to one from at least december 2017.

If youre buying from a physical shop & they can guarantee to update the board before you buy this will not be an issue.
If youre buying online then it can be an issue.

shouldn't I get a ryzen 2200g since it's way lower in price and not that bad either. I just play games like fortnite and rainbow six which will work fine on it and I will buy a gpu as soon as prices go down.

If you plan on adding a 1070 next year, go with a 2400G. It's clocked a few hundered MHz higher, so is less likely to bottleneck a 1070. It's only a slight bit more, and will give you better performance in the short term.
Another option would be to go with the 2200G with the plan to potentially upgrade it as well in the future, as all Ryzen chips support AM4.

OR get the 2200G now as its almost half the cost.. then when you get the 1070 GPU.. then get an Ryzen 2600 or better.. then resell the 2200G.. (though I would only recomend that if you are not planning to get an good GPU this year..
