    OK, it's my CPU. Geez! This thing obviously doesn't support onboard graphics. And apparently, it doesn't support legacy graphics either. I believe I bought the wrong board!

    Only APU processors like 2200g and 2400g have IGPU in the processors. It also might not show as an option in BIOS if dedicated GPU is not plugged in.

    AMD Ryzen 3 2200G Processor with Radeon Vega 8 Graphics would be compatible? Or, would a MSI Radeon HD 6450 2 GB DDR3, PCIe Graphics card R6450-2GD3H/LP work as well?

    Supported CPUs: https://www.gigabyte.com/Motherboard...10#support-cpu

    It includes the 2200G.

    I don't know about the R6450-2GD3H/LP. I see (Wikipedia) that it's from 2011. It's not a lot newer than the 5450.

    If there is a list of UEFI compatible graphics cards out there, a quick web search doesn't find it. The surest way to get one would be to go with a card from one of the newer series (nVidia 900 or later, for example), but they may cost more than you like.

    That's a bet. The
    AMD Ryzen 3 2200G seems to be the fit. I got a gamer board, but I'm not a gamer. I'm in need of very good graphics, but not GREAT graphics. But right about now, I just need SOME graphics!!!

    Just for comparison, 2200g has graphics with performance GT 1030 and 2400g like GT 1050.

    That's pretty good. However, the cost of switching to a 2200g or 2400g would be about the same as adding a GT 1030 or GTX 1050 graphics card (Newegg prices). I'd recommend that just to avoid messing with the CPU.

    Question: Would going with the CPU give me onboard graphic access, AND use of the MSI Radeon HD5450 too? Just asking.... Looking for options. If I gotta break the piggy bank, Imay as well get as much access as I can.

    Looking at the 2200G vs 2400G, and weighing that against just going with a graphics card, I like the 2200G. I think I'm gonna try that, and see where it takes me. Thanks guys. You can't know how much you've heped me on this!

    I don't know if you could use the 5450 if it wasn't the primary card.

    It looks like the CPU performance of the 2200G is about the same as your Ryzen 3 1200, so you won't lose anything there.

    However, if it was me, I'd keep the 1200, lose the 5450, and get an up-to-date discrete graphics card. Any respectable card supports multiple monitors, so the value of the 5450 is limited.

    Maybe I'm just skittish because I destroyed a Ryzen 7 X2700 when I tried a cooler swap. The thermal compound (Arctic MX-4) was too glue-like, and the CPU was ripped out of its socket. I straightened the pins, but the damage was too severe for that to work.
