Hello friends, I am searching for a cheap motherboard for ryzen 3 2200g (about 4000 INR) I will not be over clocking the processor. I came across ASUS PRIME a320m k motherboard so will it be good enough?
Ways In which I would use the pc:
  1. Programming
  2. Light gaming
  3. Light game development
  4. Everyday uses.
So, any suggestions or comments will be appreciated. Thanks all for your help.

I'd suggest go with the 400 series of chipset. the 300 series chipset is for ryzen 1 series and need to update the bios* to support the newer 2nd series ryzen (like 2200g)

So any cheap 400 series motherboard will do. like this one: https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157871
I'd shop around for the b450 chipset and get one from the cheapest bunch.

*in order to update bios you need a cpu from 1st series ryzen .. so it could get complicated for you if bios is not updated and don't have any 1st gen ryzen on hand to update the bios. This is why i recommend 400 series chipset, because it's newer and works right out of the box with ryzen 2200g, also it has more usb3.1, m.2 nvme support, and other bells and whistles.

Currently I'm on a pretty tight budget and anything above 5000INR would be too much to spend for the motherboard. I've seen an Asus a320m k on Amazon and the seller says that he has the BIOS updated for ryzen 3 2200g.
Currently, the spec sheet of the pc I intend to build is as follows:
  • Processor : AMD Ryzen 2200g
  • Motherboard : Asus prime a320m k
  • RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX 4Gb DDR4 MEMORY
  • PSU: Corsair VS450
  • Case : I've an old case that shall suffice
  • HDD : I've a n old 500GB HDD that shall suffice.
Now, is there any better budget build under 2100INR for the uses I mentioned earlier? If so, please share your views or suggestions.
As for AsRock b450m hdv, It will be way out of budget and hence I'll not be buying it.
Thanks
