Idk if I'm misunderstanding but there is no point in having an APU paired with a gpu. An APU is a cpu with integrated graphics. Because you have a gpu the integrated graphics on the APU is useless and only the clu portion is used which is terrible. The apu is very old and will hold back gaming performance.

ok whats a cheap one that new (must be a apu because it adds a little more performance). Edit: I change my mind ill take a normal cpu but I would rather have a apu.

A cpu would add more performance than an APU. An APU will hold back your graphics card. An APU is meant to be used by itself as a budget part. Idk if I'm just misunderstanding you or something but an APU won't add any more gaming performance than a regular cpu

A regular cpu it is then.

And if you are upgrading an old computer I would just scrap it completely. Your cpu will bottleneck your gpu terribly.

I have plans for the old one. Edit: By the way I don't have the money to replace my current one right now.
