Ryzen 5 1600

I have a several year old Haswell i5 and want to upgrade. Can get the 1600 for $79 at Microcenter. Won't be doing any gaming with it, just some 1080p video editing and encoding with Handbrake. What would be a good, inexpensive ($150 or below) GPU to go with it?

Well for multicore performance a 1600 will crush a haswell i5 because of having 6 cores 12 threads over 4 cores 4 threads. As for a GPU a RX 570 is excellent bang for the buck under $150USD if you are looking to buy new.
