Hello guys!
A friend of mine asked if I could build him a tower.
The PC will only be used for office use, but need to be future proof. Needs wifi. I'm trying to find the best bang for his buck.
Please let me know if the balance is good between price and performance (not too overkill for his use or if there would be better options)?
I was hesitant that a Ryzen 5 3400G was overkill and maybe I should switch for a Ryzen 3 3200g?

Thanks for your answer!
Yes I think I'll indeed go with the 3400g.
According to comments on Newegg the motherboard is 3rd gen ready. I'll make sure to send a separate note asking for it!
Cheers!
