So i have old build at the moment and i want to upgrade
I currently have
Motherboard: ASUS M3N78 SE
CPU : AMD Phenom X4 9650
GPU : PowerColor R9 280X
RAM : DDR2 4GB
PSU : Corsair CX600

I bought these parts
Motherboard : Gigabyte A320M-H
RAM : 2x4GB 2666MHz

And planning to buy Ryzen 3 1200 CPU
But the store recomended me Ryzen 5 2600 or Ryzen 5 2600x and new motherboard
but that was much much over my budget so i found this CPU : Ryzen 3 2200G will it work for me?
Thanks

If you are using a dedicated graphics card the 2200g isnt worth much more money over a 1200.

A 1200 and 2200g woll work on that motherboard as lomg as the bios is remotely recent.
sorry but im not that smarty guy can you make it easier for me to understand?
like should i get the 1200 or 2200g

Whats the price difference?


The 2200g is faster, but often sells for a lot more than the 1200 making the slightly slower 1200 a better value.
one more question can i update bios without cpu or with ryzen 3 2200g
because i dont have any other cpu ?

The R3 1200 is definitely the better deal.

Maybe you could get the 1200 and a b450 motherboard (allows better ram support and CPU overclocking) rather than the 2200g and A320.

Heres an example of a very budget B450 motherboard.
