it truly depends on what you planning on doing. if your going to game. get the ryzen and a rx 550 or rx460 or a gtx 750ti. if you will do light gaming at a resolution or 720p on medium to low setting then get the A 12 9800. with no gpu. i currently own a amd athlon 5350 with built in gpu. it runs everything at 720p. so i know the a12 will work.
