really a card that old would probably have a hard time with even just Youtube. You can get like a b-stock GT610 for 20 bucks though and it'll work enough, or see of someone you know would be kind enough to let you use an old GPU until you can afford your own.

you can buy a gt 210 for cheap

I'd say that bare minimum for youtube these days

 

I'd drop down to a ryzen 1st gen chip

with a gpu

Just note that your motherboard socket has to be AM4, etc.  If you are just buying a chip, and nothing else - you may as well use it as a crappy paperweight!
