Ryzen 3 2200G vs Ryzen 5 2600 for Gaming

DrDerp
 Share

Hello there! I was wondering whether or not I should invest extra money in a CPU for and upgrade to my PC. You see, I have a massive bottleneck in my system currently due to my RAM and my CPU, to the point where it is easier and cheaper to just buy new than to continue using older hardware. I primarily use my system for gaming, and while yes, I know Intel is better, I am on a budget. I would prefer to spend less than 400 USD on this upgrade, and while I know I should have gotten parts during Black Friday I had no money to spend at that time.

 

TLDR

Basically I need to decide if the Ryzen 5 2600's 2 extra cores and 8 more GPU PCIE lanes is worth it over the 2200G. My current GPU is a RX 570. Which one would be better for casual gaming with a 75 FPS Target? Big thanks for any help.

EDIT
Forgot to state my Monitor and Preferred Settings

1080p 75 FPS High.

Who needs fancy graphics and high resolutions when you can get a 60 FPS frame rate on iGPUs?

If you've already got an RX 570, the 2200G does you no good. The real question would be Ryzen 3 1200/1300X or Ryzen 5 2600.

 

To that, I would say that the Ryzen 5 2600 is out there for $150-160 and well worth the bump over the $100 1200 for gaming. Make sure you're investing in a B350 or B450 motherboard, not an A320.

Sincerely,

Alright, thanks. I've known the other parts for some time that I would need, however I couldn't justify the CPU performance at the time.

If all you're playing is Skyrim and Steam indies, the R3 is fine. If you're looking at doing any kind of AAA gaming or heavy productivity workloads, the 6C/12T Ryzen 5 is going to more than pay for itself when you don't need to upgrade in a year.

I'm personally more into Quake Champions, FURI (so steam Indies), and I pick up older (2 year oldish) AAA Titles on steam sales.

The only real appeal to the 2200g or even 2400g for that matter is the fact it has a on chip GPU. If you already have a gpu like you stated then the 2600 is your best choice.

Strict budget however means I’ll have to save up for a while to get it.

It is about twice as much true, but you are getting a much better chip out of it (IMO). 2 more cores and 4 more threads, plus you get full pci-e 16 support.

if you have no chance of getting a zen 2 next year, then just buy the 2600 now.
