asking for a friend

A friend of mine wants to build a pc without gaming in mind, he mostly uses programs like fusion 360, and other 3D modlling software, focused on 3D printing, with some photoshop and lightroom here and there for photo editing, so, i was thinking about the next build:

Ryzen 3 2200G

MSI B450M PRO-M2

2x8gb HyperX Predator @ 3000Mhz

EVGA 450BT

120 gb SSD-1TB HDD

 

he has a budget of around 600 USD, but considering we only have access to chilean pricing (really inflated) and ryzen 2 wont be here until a couple months later, the cost is not really the same here, so, i have a couple questions

 

1) is this enough for his use case? (he is upgrading from a a6 6400k) should i include a graphics card?

2) would you change any of the parts? keeping the cost at around the same

 

if any of you want to take a look at our prices, you can use www.solotodo.com

1) meh, you might want to look around in the used market if you can

2) mobo to the b450m pro4, at least a tier 3 psu on the list down my signature, maybe try to fit a 240 gb in it?

 

gpu would be a good idea tho

If you put in some research you can find damn good prices on older Xeon CPU's which are perfect for this kind of workload. You can get 2 x5687's or 1 x5690 for LESS than the cost of a Ryzen 3 2200g.

LOL RIP. Most of the x5690's are 91.99 USD on ebay and you can get an X58 motherboard for it under 100 with support for triple channel, ECC memory up to 16 Gb I think.

 

EDIT: Up to 24 Gb of ECC memory in a triple channel config.
