Im upgrading an old rig I got a while ago I think in 2014 or 15.
It has an old AMD-FX 8320 (oc to 4.1)
and I want to switch to a Ryzen 2200g but im worried about going down to 4 cores.

I really dont know if this is a good cpu to switch to or if its even worth switching to from my 8320.

Im also aware I cant just slap the 2200g into the 970a mobo and Ill need ddr4 but im worried about the cpu first and foremost
 
For gaming it's going to be a very nice upgrade for other stuff that requires multiple cores it will be a slight barely noticeable downgrade. If you game then do it and don't think twice about it. However if you want an all round upgrade get Ryzen 5. Any Ryzen 5. Even just the Quad cores with SMT will be a good choice. The Ryzen 5 1400 is only $150 and it can be found even cheaper on ebay.

The 2400G is a better choice than the 1400. They're both 4 core ryzen with multithreading, but the 2400G is at 3.5GHz (3.9 boost) while the 1400 is at 3.2 (3.4 boost) for almost the same price (2400G is $167)
