New PC build

I am planning on doing a Ryzen 7 7800x3D build.

Right now I don’t have enough money to buy a new gpu.

I currently have an ancient Asus R9 290x which I could use.

But I don’t know if I will run into problems by using that gpu?

 

My other possible option is to buy a second hand NVIDIA 2000 or 3000 series gpu for now. Until I can afford a 4000 gpu.

 

If I can use the R9 290x. Will if I have to reduce the performance of the cpu to compensate?

You can use it, it will just be horribly slow

what's your country? Don't get a 4000 series GPU if your budget is tight and you're only gaming, Radeon 7000 Series is the way to go 

Message me on discord (bread8669) for more help
