I been thinking about what parts I need for my PC (I don't like to spend money in something that I don't/won't need). I use a lot programs at the same time: IDE, 2 databases, multiple spreadsheets, 2 browsers (multiple tabs), chat/voice calls, email client, remote desktop, and a time tracker; sometimes a graphics editor but for minor stuff. Sometimes I play web games (flash/unity/stencil that i can complete in 15/20 mins when I'm "done for the moment"), YouTube videos, Spotify and some movies (using VLC).
I was thinking on Ryzen 5 2600U but, right now, a Ryzen 7 2700, 16 GB of RAM (in the future to 32 GB, maybe 64 GB), and 250 GB SSD is better. As you can read, I don't play AAA games (don't have time for that) so I need a very very very basic video card (VC). I only need to reproduce videos at 60fps in a 1920x1080 screen and play my web games (my current PC suffers trying to do these).
What VC do you recommend for a person like me with these needs? I only found recommendations for top notch VCs.
Note: To put you in perspective, currently I have an Intel Core 2 Duo with integrated video of 4 GB of RAM (8 years old)... and still works fine (except for videos at 60fps on some web games).
