I have an intern that I am considering offering a paid position beginning in November. If that is the case, I need to move him off of the 'intern' computers (Optiplex 3010 from 2012).
I am considering a cheaper Ryzen build as opposed to an Intel build because I already have a spare B350 board.
My questions is which CHEAP GPU should I grab to throw in said machine? He will not (better not) be gaming on the machine, but he will have a head task workload with a number of programs open simultaneously on 2-3 monitors.
I have considered a GT-1030, but I really don't want to spend $80 on a gimped GPU that is so close in price to the 1050 / 560's. I also don't know that he needs this type of video power as he won't be streaming or gaming.
Would a $35 GT 210 / 710 be sufficient if no games are being played on the machine? Will this hinder the benefits of multitasking (the main reason I am considering the Ryzen build anyway)? Or will a GT 210 / 710 be a bad move? Should I just pony up and buy the 1050 if I go for this build?
