Cpu Choice Problem

Go to solution Solved by Jurrunio,

If you already have a graphics card and plan on continue using that, then that's not a good upgrade. 2200G is about 15-25% faster, which is small for your expense. If you don't have a graphics card though the 2200G is much better, because Vega 8 is magnitudes faster than whatever's in the 3450

Greetings folks! I currently have an Intel Core I5 3470 which has a bit of age now adays, so I've been having the idea on building a whole new Unit. I have my eyes on the Ryzen 3 2200g cause i think it's a very good value for the money. Which brings my question. Will it be reasonable to change into Ryzen 3 2200g vs. My already owned Intel core i5 3470? Thanks for your thoughts...

I'd step up to at minimum the Ryzen 5 2600 then. (I'll also presume you have a GPU as well since it will be needed with that CPU)

 

The 2600 is only around $150

I'm currently using a gtx 550 ti but i think vega 8 will burry that gpu. What do you think?

Yeah you're right about that. The Vega 8 will out perform a 550 ti. Of course you always upgrade both ;) For around $370 I was able to get a 2600 and a RX580

I would see what comes out in the summer or fall from AMD and intel unless you need a new system now.  If you are going to buy an APU I think the R5 2400G is a slightly better investment over the 2200G, however, just like another poster said the 2600 and 580 are both at amazing prices right now and those two upgrades will be significant and provide an amazing experience over your old computer.
