I Put this with a 256GB m.2 and a B450 mobo with 8GB RAM. Really decent for those steam games that don't need a proper graphics card.

Quick question mate, is changing a motherboard pretty straight forward?
Out of the loop with p.c stuff these days

what is this the equivalent to in terms of Intel is it as simple as Ryzen 3 would be i3, Ryzen 5 - i5 etc? or is it more complicated than that.L these days, I also heard the other day they have a new confusing new naming scheme with the extreme versions

Yes I do know AMD will always be like the cheaper version so it will never be an exact equal to a intel directly, I am well aware of that aspect but if you was to mention a nearesequivalent.

I built my current PC with this chip and a B450m motherboard and it was pretty straight forward. The only trouble I had was matching the front panel with the board but I got it sorted at the second attempt. You can't really plug the wrong thing into the wrong socket (except the front panel). It's pretty easy although will probably take you an hour at a first attempt. I used my phone's camera to take photo's of the various sockets I got stuck on. The writing on that motherboard is tiny!

As to the chip and motherboard combination. I can play every free game that Steam/ Origin give away. I'm not a big gamer (hence why I play the freebies) but it's a great workhorse for my coding needs. Stick an SSD as your primary drive and you've got a nippy machine.

Edit* spelling.

Ok sounds like I could manage it.My sons motherboard is the A320 which I've read are rubbish! Is it purely because nothing can be overclocked?

I'm a noob like you so if I can do it you can too! Yes it's pretty easy skill wise.

I read it can be overclocked but I know nothing about overclocking, sorry can't help

Been big help mate, I'm gonna give it ago
Worth noting that the same code will get you a 3600 for £156, which isn't exactly cheap but beats the prices that have gone mental everywhere else over the last couple of days.

Yeah, just make sure your motherboard is compatible with the chip uk.pcpartpicker.com/. Put your hand on a radiator to remove any static from yourself and you're good to go.

Any problems then put a question out on Discussions, there's plenty of more knowledgable people than me who will help. You won't have any problems though, it's pretty easy to do.
chrismac2614/07/2020 12:00

Quick question mate, is changing a motherboard pretty straight forward?


Yes. There are plenty of YouTube videos but on the whole cables will only go into certain slots and only one way and the power supply will always have the cables you need. You may find a few cables that won't be needed so don't worry about them.

You're biggest.problem could be fitting it if you don't align the I/o shield properly. Just jiggle it and make sure the shielding isn't stopping you and you should be ok. The shielding may already be fitted on certain motherboards so it's just making sure it fits in the gap on the case which it should do.

99% of standoffs are easily fitted if you need extras but as far as I'm aware they are all a standard size and the holes are in the same place regardless of the motherboard you go with.

Also I would recommend putting the CPU and the cooling fan in place with the RAM before you fit the motherboard. It will make it easier for you in the long run.

Also one more thing is fitting any fans. Make sure the motherboard has the amount of slots you need or get a few splitter cables for fans. They won't affect the use it will just mean you can't adjust each one separately.
Ok mate, thanks for the pointers. Quick question. Within similar price range, looking at ryzen 5 3600 or ryzen 7 2700x? It's mainly for games like fortnite.
Anyone got any recommendations for a decent but still pretty damn budget MOBO for AM4? in MATX of MITX?

Not a heavy gamer but will be doing some that need a touch more grent then the ryzen APU (will probably pair it with a 3100 and 960GTX card).

My first PC build in years and i am really out of the loop. Looking to replace my older i5 NUC to get a bit more GFX performance.

Motherboards have always been pretty fringe to my understanding to be honest! I need it to work well and last a long time! (wilst supporting NVME drives.

I would recommend going for whichever is cheaper, they both have their advantages - the 2700X has more cores+threads so for multi-threaded applications and games it'll usually perform better than the 3600. The 3600, on the other hand, has better single core performance, so for applications and games which favour that, they'll perform better on the 3600.
I think (if all other things are equal) Fortnite performs better on the 3600, but it would be a minimal difference.
The bigger difference for Fortnite will be the GPU that's paired with it.

Thanks, Think I'll go with 3600. And get the 1660 super. Had delivery earlier today the corsair vengeance 3200 2x8gb so hopefully it will shut son up lol!

The 3600 is better, you made the right choice tbh.

The 3 series have got larger L3 cache (32MB), quite significantly, than the 2 series (16MB).

AMD isn't just a cheaper alternative to Intel anymore. Their ryzen series is a serious challenger for the market. In fact, the ryzen chips mostly equal or outperform the intel chips that are roughly on a similar level, at a cheaper price too. Some of the intel chips are still better in some ways, but unless you specifically need intel for certain things, or you have an expensive intel motherboard that you don't want to swap out, you're better off with AMD cpus these days for cost and performance.

Looking at them like ryzen 3 = i3 is pretty much about right though, tbh. Ryzen 3 is quadcore, ryzen 5 is hexcore, ryzen 7 is octacore.

Wow that’s interesting didn’t realise they have come so far, that makes a lot of sense. Thanks for the explanation.
Good price, heat added!
Thinking of building my son a starter PC, would this APU with decent RAM be enough to play modern games like Fortnite without a GPU? Cheers 🏻

You shouldn't have any trouble running Fortnite on this.
Not sure if the person who uploaded this is a trustworthy source or not but it was the first result I found for "3200G, 1080p": youtube.com/wat…HjM
3200g is really solid for its price

I have just built a 3200g with 8gb ram for my nephew and it runs fortnite perfectly fine! just need to play it on low or medium settings to keep the framerate stable at 60.

Wouldn't it be better to get i3-9100f at 62£ than buying this?

You could, if you also buy a standalone GPU to go with it, but that will cost more than an additional £14.

The i3 lacks an integrated GPU, which is why it's a little cheaper.
