I am in the process of gathering parts for my 3rd build. I am by no means a PC builder. Just use common sense and a bunch of research. I do enjoy it though. I have used intel processors on the previous builds. I have gotten into photography since my last build and now realize with lightroom and photoshop and 5 years behind on technology that I need to upgrade. I am going looking into the Ryzen 5 based on research and reviews as a happy medium between budget and performance. Since the last build I have realized that some CPUs have onboard graphics. So I know what I am looking at. 1st question is if I went with say the 3400G would I need to get a GPU still or will the CPU suffice. If not should I stay with that and add a GPU. 2nd question what GPU would be a good fit with this.
