My 1200 @3.7 (close to a stock 2200g) and 580 are fine with BeamNG. I am purely GPU bound, although the last update has seemed to hammer my CPU a little more than before.

You will need low settings to get BeamNG running well. It would have severe issues on any I3, but the 2200g should be ok with lowered settings.
If I can run it at low, medium settings with some cars it's great.

I mentioned the i3 based on playing Minecraft

My 1200 @3.7 (close to a stock 2200g) and 580 are fine with BeamNG at 1080p. Some maps will be ok with high settings but some require me to turn settings down a tad. I am purely GPU bound, although the last update has seemed to hammer my CPU a little more than before.

Yeah 1680x1050 is a nice resolution, you get almost the same vertical height as 1080p since it's 16:10 instead of 16:9 aspect ratio. I have 1920x1200 Lenovo monitors.
Thanks, if it's nice I will only upgrade it when I see dead pixels or some other defect. It's great for video editing so I hope Ryzen runs well (I only render at 720p60 or 720p30).
Is the stock cooler fine then? I forgot to ask earlier.

If you can try changing the mobo to a cheap b450.Reason being it got a good upgrade path.The A320 are a bare bone mobo with about no futures.If you budget doesn't allow it then it makes sense.Also 80gb is not enough these days.My brother actually got a 120ssd and it's only used for windows.He got 2tb for dl/game installs.

No, it really doesnt allow since it's 20 euros more expensive, (budget is 180 euros) this is the build:
Motherboard MSI A320M PRO-E - sk AM4 47,90 €
AMD - RYZEN 3 2200G 3.5GHZ 2MB L2 83,23 €
CRUCIAL - Ballistix Sport DIMM DDR4 8GB 2666M Unbuffered € 36, 89
SSD 2.5" Kingston A400 120GB TLC SATA 17,90€
Total: 185,90€ is there something bad here?
 
The a320 is fine if you dont want to overclock. All MSI A320 motherboards have received bios updates for 3rd gen cpus if you want to upgrade in thr future, but the vrms might not like a high tdp chip.

The single channel 2666mhz ram is far from ideal. It will certainly reduce igpu and cpu performance, but it will work if you truely cannot spend a dime more.

If i put later more 8GB that will certainly increase performance right? And do i have to put the same model of RAM?
