I picked up a used B450 board that supports Zen1 to current AM4 up to 105W TDP. I am just buying it to use as test setup, swap parts for testing, don't intend to actually put into usage beyond that. What (used) AM4 model would you get with only $50 MAX to spend? Prefer not higher than 65W model (cheaper CPU coolers).

Ryzen 5 2600 if $50 is a hard cap.

If you want IGP and the stock cooler bundled, Amazon is still selling the lesser Ryzen 3 3200G for $73.

Well heck, now I got a Ryzen 5 PRO 4650G coming, after seller accepted my offer, for $80 shipped! Couldn't resist at that price. :p

However! My ASRock B450 board arrived and is damaged. No sign of trouble from the outside packaging, so they packed the board in this condition. VRM heatsink flopping around, corner of the board cracked. Seller has very high feedback too. Grrrrr....
