I want to upgrade to Ryzen but I'm not sure if I should buy the Ryzen 1200 or the Ryzen 2200g (I currently have an fx 6300), I already have the graphics card, It's a "msi gtx 1050 aero itx 2g oc" whatever.

Budget, about $380. I'll be bulding this new pc in June ideally (It'll be my first pc build). I plan on upgrading in the future and also overclocking. So I could use some advice from people that actually know about this stuff. The 2200g is 19$ more expensive than the 1200 where I live. which could make the difference between me getting a 120g ssd instead of a 240g one. But idk what's more worth it. I also don't know what motherboard to choose, I don't care buying a 500w power supply, then upgrading to a better one. I would rather get an over the top motherboard than a power supply (Does that make any sense?). and the i3 8100 isn't an option because I want to upgrade to something like a Ryzen 5 2600 or the upcoming Ryzens. Yes I do productivity aswell as gaming.

Thanks in advance for any help.

No, not really. Get a good PSU from the get go. Not that 500W is too little, but there aren't many good 500W units. Get a good quality 550W and it'll last you for years with room for upgrades.

If you're willing to overclock get the Ryzen 1200. And a B350/450 motherboard. 2x4GB RAM or 2x8GB if you can manage, preferably ~3000-3200 MHz.

Are you in the US?

Thanks for the response, Nope, I'm not in the US, I don't think it matters if I tell you where am I from but Idc saying it either, I'm from Colombia. anyways, I got another question, will a 550w power supply be enough for an RTX 2060 in the future?

What you said about the power supply, I 100% agree with, but I'd say to get the Ryzen 2200G because second gen Ryzen has much better RAM compatibility.
 
Yeah, I suppose that's something to consider. I was under the impression that 1st gen Ryzen support wasn't too bad these days with latest BIOSs applied though. If the OP wants to play it safe they could always make sure to get something off the QVL list, assuming the cost is similar to other available kits.

Edit: Actually, are you sure the 2200G would even have better memory support? I thought that came with the Zen+ architecture, which is what the 12nm 2nd Gen Ryzen parts use. Ryzen APUs use 1st Gen 14nm Zen architecture from what I can tell.
