Hi,

I'd like to go for a Ryzen 5 build on a tight budget. My plan is to buy the minimum hardware, keeping the budget as low as possible right now and then upgrade later on.
As 3600 doesn't have an integrated GPU, I'm planning to use existing GT 610.

Planned Specs:
Ryzen 5 3600
B450 Tomahawk
DDR4 3200 8GB
PSU 650 Watt
SSD 240GB - Existing
GT 610 - Existing

Down the line upgrade path:

NVME 500GB
Additional DDR4 3200 8GB - Total 16GB
GTX 1660 Ti

Please note that I'll not even attempt to game without upgrading. The primary purpose is for programming with dual monitor
Is this a good plan?

If budget is that tight, then get either Ryzen 2400g or 3400g(essentially an overclocked out of the box version of the former, while costing about $30 more).
The integrated Vega 11 gpu is stronger than the GT 610.

Agree with the 3200g. Depends how long you’re gonna wait.
