Looking to build my first PC with around a £700 budget, predominantly for gaming (League of Legends, Fortnite etc) and a little bit of music production as I'm slowly getting into it (currently using LMMS).
Through a few days of research, I'm wondering is it worth getting a graphics card at all? I am thinking of getting a Ryzen CPU as I believe it has a graphics card built in? Then at a later date if the prices drop eventually I can get a graphics card as an upgrade. My thoughts in this are leaving out a graphics card I could potentially get an SSD and more RAM and just overall better components in other places.
Would this be a sensible decision? I have also been looking into pre builts but I kinda want to build my own as a little project.
What are your thoughts?

If you want to game at decent frame rates yes you want a graphics card if you want to run the games at low level then no you don’t need one just a motherboard with video out puts in the io plate
