I'm planning to build a budget PC. my budget is 400 USD. I have 2 choices.

 

Ryzen Build

Ryzen 3 2200G

8 gb ram ddr4 2400MHz

A320M mobo

no GPU

 

Intel Build

Intel Pentium Gold 5400

RX 570/ GTX 1050Ti/ GT 1030/ RX 550 any of these

H310H5-M2 mobo

8 gb ram ddr4 2400MHz

 

Workload is light. Microsoft apps, spotify, League of Legends, DOTA 2, Rules of survival, PS2 Emulator and maybe Fortnite. Should I get the ryzen build and save up for a GPU later or should I get the intel build and sacrifice upgradeability? or can you suggest different parts for my workload. Suggestions are highly appreciated. thank you!!!

I'm from Philippines. I just used USD so everyone can gauge the budget ? I also need to buy power supply, case and 1TB hdd tho. I don't think I don't necessarily need ssd or M.2 drive. Thanks for replying by the way!!!

Would go Ryzen. The apps you use will expand as time goes and you'll need more processing power in the future.

Thank you so much! ? I only game 720p and not care about cranking settings on low. Do you think the ryzen 3 2200G alone would work?

Get an SSD, M.2 is pretty unnecessary tho

Hello! I'm concerned about the RAM speed. Most of the people say 3200MHz is quite required especially with the integrated graphics. Can 2400MHz work? How will it affect performance?
