Unless you’re friend is against it, I would go for used. You can usually find much better bang for your buck in used at this price range.


I am far from an expert in this so please correct me if I’m wrong.

go AMD (Radeon RX 570 or something). Also, for your CPU, I would get Ryzen 3100 if your country has it priced right.

Thanks, I have now changed the GPU to the RX 570 which is saving around £30 and the 3100 is like £100 extra than the 2200g I found so that does not make a whole lot of sense for me.

ok. it was supposed to be $100. The 2200G is not great but you can get by
