Most people don't get the 10% ebay bucks.

Partially disagree. You have to have a semi-active ebay account to actually get the targeted promo.

According to the pop thread about the Ryzen 5 1400 and PNY SSD on the same ebay store, there's a fair deal of SDers that do get the promo offer.

The problem with ebay bucks is that
  1. You have to be signed up for ebay promo emails. [doctorofcredit.com]
  2. Need to have a semi-active account to get targeted. Or at least not be transient.
  3. People forget to activate their 8% or 10% bonus BEFORE they buy.
  4. Others forget to actually use their quarterly ebay bucks certificate once its generated, defeating the purpose of cash back; which by the way is a bad excuse because you can buy an ebay GC with ebay bucks so they don't expire.
  5. People don't know that the minimum $5 per quarter to get ebay bucks was removed by Ebay not too long ago. So even a small bit of cashback gets rewarded quarterly. There's no imperative to meet a certain spending limit.

I bought this processor a while back not realizing that onboard GPU on the mobo I bought doesn't work with Ryzen...now looking for an effective but inexpensive < $100 graphics card deal - they don't seem to ever be SDs on those deals.

Err... you realize that you have it backwards right? The GPU is on the CPU. What you bought wasn't a motherboard with a GPU, just the bios support and ports to use an integrated GPU if it comes with the CPU like the A8 CPUs. The Ryzens don't have an integrated GPU, even though they share the same socket. Hence, your issue.

Your problem reminds me of the eSATA and USB 3.0 port problem on some of ThinkPads a while back. The UltraDock for the ThinkPad could either come with eSATA or USB 3.0 but not both. But just because you had a eSATA port didn't mean you could use it, unless you docked a ThinkPad that had a eSATA chip inside. The same went for USB 3.0. In either case, it wasn't the dock that dictated function. It was the computer.

People got use to all CPUs having integrated graphics, especially since Intel has it with their high-end CPUs like the i7-7700k. AMD did market segmentation differently this time around.

Yeah you are correct...any suggestions on a <$100 graphics card that can play most titles on low or medium settings (obviously not looking to play the newer games on high end or even medium settings)?

Thx

Not *quite* under $100, but for $115 (free shipping, no tax unless you're in NY/NJ) there's the 560 which is actually pretty good:

It also only draws power from the PCIe slot, meaning you don't need a separate power input.
