So, I finally have a chance to escape from a dual processor which is right now is an Intel pentium g4560 3.5 ghz, but i have a hard time choosing whether to continue intel or abandon ship and go to amd. My motherboard is a GA-H110M-H-rev-10 that supports ONLY 7th gen and 6th gen. Now an i5-7100 3.0 ghz (not unlocked) here is 206 Usd, I can afford that but i saw amd's offer and decided to have a look at the ryzen 3 processors. It seems to me that a new mobo and a processor will cost more but a mobo and a 2200g is just 160 Usd, and a mobo and a 1300x is 179 Usd, I could even cut down even more cost if i buy a second hand mobo. The 2200g and 1300x is unlocked and has a higher clock speed, they are both quad core. It is going to be used for gaming, games such as Forza horizon 3, CS:GO, PUBG, Ace Combat 7, and minecraft (with shaders of course) I will also edit videos using this platform. Indeed it is worth it, but I live under a rock to know if the switch is better or if i just stay. The money i save on buying the amd processor will be thrown at games or buying a new chair to replace this rotting monoblock. I expect for this build to last atleast 5 years or so, it has only done 2 years of it's service with the pentium g4560 processor.

GA-H110M ddr4
g4560 pentium 3.5 ghz
Hyperx ddr4 8gb
galax gtx 1050ti 4gb
xigmatek calibre 600w
3tb of hdd storage
 
A 1300x, 2200g, or 1200 will beat or tie an I5 7400, G4560, and certainly a core I3 7100.
I would buy a Ryzen 3 1200 if you plan to overclock since it tends to overclock higher than a 2200g, but a 2200g if you don't want to since it has higher stock clocks. The 1300x is just an overclocked 1200 so i would avoid the 1300x if the 1200 is cheaper and you want to overclock. AMD has a better upgrade path. WHat ram do you have?

i have a hyperx fury ddr4 8gb i'd probably go for the 2200g because of my lack of knowledge on overclocking the cpu

I can't buy a 3000mhz kit right now since my focus is on the cpu, will it run decently with 2400mhz?
not really, as stated above, AMD almost requires 3000+Mhz RAM or you are not using your cpu to the fullest.
RAM prices have gone down significally, 8gb should be about 50-60€. Are you sure you can't squeze that in?

I cant really since i have upgraded from 4 to 16gb last year, how much percent of the processing power will i lose without a 3000mhz ram?

Also i can just endure the cpu speed loss and save up for a 3000 16gb or even a 32gb kit but for now my goal is to get that 4 core processing

sure, go for it! AMD has amazin price-performance stats and you can always add ram later just be sure to get 2x8gb in a kit so they are tested that they work together and as we said 3000MHz or even 3200MHz
