I have pc with this spec :
CPU :Ryzen 3 2200g
GPU : RX 580 8gb
Mobo : MSI a320m pro-vd/s v2
Ram : 2x4gb 2666mhz
Psu : deepcool 500w 80+
Ssd : samsung evo 860 250gb

I will upgrade my CPU to ryzen 5 2600, but some peoples say better i upgrade to ryzen 5 3600, my bios version is : AMD AGESA combo-AM4 1.0.0.3, i don't really know about stuff like bios update, did ryzen 5 3600 will work? Or do i need update the bios first?

I'm seeing the 2600 should be a drop in as it uses the same BIOS as the 2200g.
The 3600 requires a newer BIOS.
I'm not sure which BIOS you have.
They are all listed here...but they don't coincide with what you posted....as they list "file names".

When buying mobo and the CPU i let repair shop do the job about installing the hardware, you think it's the correct bios for ryzen 3rd gen? That's mean i can use ryzen 5 3600 right?
