Which graphics card for this build.

I'm looking for a GPU right now to do some gaming on. I currently use an Xbox One for gaming but I definitely prefer PC gaming. Now that I have some cash I'm going to pick up a GPU.

It would be great if I could play things like Fallout 4. Nothing super extensive, i'm pretty casual with games.

I was looking around and the RX 470 seemed like a good fit. But there are much more informed people so any advice is appreciated.

Do you already have the CPU/motherboard/RAM?

An RX 470 will work, but in many games it will be held back by your CPU. While the G3258 will be able to run Fallout 4, it's ultimately still a dual-core CPU and modern PC gaming is best handled by CPUs with four cores or more. You'll get higher framerates and graphical settings if you use an i3 or i5 processor (or the hyperthreaded G4560).

Yeah i understand that. Thanks for the help. I think my next task is going to be an i5 or something. I only got this CPU because i knew eventually i was going to trade up to an i5-i7

Card like the RX 480 or RX 470 which is equal to the Gtx 1060 and GTX 1050 Ti.

Just be careful as your powerful isn't the best on the power supply tier list and its only 430w.

power supply tier list

Eeeuuuugh...

The CX430 is a perfectly usable power supply for low-end builds. It's not appropriate in this situation because the OP is using an unlocked processor and the CX430's price is currently too high.
