Keep in mind that this is a 12 years old CPU. Not sure why you've traded perfectly good DDR4 memory for something that old.
But if you don't want to spend too much, look into a used RX 570.
There are lower end cards that might be "better suited" for this CPU... But I've just checked the prices on ebay and seriously, people are WAY overcharging for their old garbage, when an RX 570 cost about the same as an R9 270... it's ridiculous.
If you want brand new, get a GT 1030.
I mean he's a good friend and he slid me a solid 45 bucks and an iou so its chill, I was just more curious to its performance if anything just because it was a interesting curiosity. (triple channel ram??? WACK)
But yeah people are way over charging for shit, my other friend is looking to upgrade his 970 so maybe I'll snag that. But nothing better than a 570 you'd say?
I was considering a used gtx 1050 just cuz nvidia drivers have been pretty stable... screw gt 1030 that was my first card (during the mining crisis) and I can still hear the screams...
In terms of games all we want to play is Divinity Original Sin 2 and Destiny 2 so we're not trying to do anything crazy with it.
I'm not expecting the world just something to hold us over until she has more money to spend.
