non-gaming Ryzen 2200G build?

Jan 23, 2019
I have a Ryzen 2200G chip (long story). I need to build a productivity PC around it. It will be used almost entirely productivity, no expected gaming. No video or photo editing likely.

I need to figure out a good:
1) microATX mobo
2) Ram
3) SSD (120-240g should be more than enough)

I'm assuming no dedicated graphics card needed, no case needed. Budget isn;t the first priority, but I don't feel the need to overbuy or futureproof. Ability to upgrade to a graphics card and more memory later is always a plus, in case this gets repurposed.

Ideas? Good build templates to check out? Took a shot on PCpartpicker. Probably overkill (Added a case just for fun.)


You just need a compatible motherboard. For some level of upgradeability, B350 or B450 chipset. DDR4 memory, 2666Mhz is probably good if you don't need it for gaming.

Any old SATA SSD.

This really won't be all that expensive. But without knowing where you are, can't really pick out parts.

Houston, TX, have a MicroCenter and Frys in easy driving distance:)

I live in Houston and love the MicroCenter.

I would go with this. 8gb of RAM is plenty for what you want to use it for. I went with a 500gb SSD because it was only $13 more than the 250gb. You could get a cheaper DRAM less SSD, but pricing on SSDs are so low these days it is hard to pass up a on quality SSD.
