Are you getting a graphics card or not?

 

If you're getting a graphics card, go for a non-G Ryzen 5 chip. If you're not getting a graphics card, 2400G.

Skip the APU then and go for the best Ryzen CPU that fits in your budget.

 

If you're in the U.S and near a Micro Center, take advantage of their CPU/motherboard bundle deal. I managed to fit a Ryzen 5 1600 into my rig because I got $30 off my motherboard.

Asrock B450 Pro4, probably. I have the B350 version, it's a really solid board.

If budget allows definitely step up to the 6 core now.  If you get the 1300 I bet within a year or two you will want or need more CPU and end up upgrading anyhow.  Whereas if you get the 6 core now you should be set for a few years anyways. 

Ryzen 2600 - Sapphire Pulse Vega 56 - Corsair Vengeance LED DDR4 3000 C15 2x8GB - Corsair Force MP500 NVMe PCIe M.2 240GB - 2x Seagate Barracuda 2TB -

The Ryzen 2400G is around 150€, for only 10-20€ more, you can get either a 1600 or even the 2600, wich are both better choices.

The 2400G is a bit on the pricey side and should be around 100€ or so...

What board do you have for that?  Maybe all you need is a processor drop in upgrade.

 

Like maybe a used 6th generation i7 or i5, perhaps? :)

CPU: Sempron 2500+ / P4 2.8E / P4 2.6C / A64 x2 4000+ / E6420 / E8500 / i5-3470 / i7-3770
GPU: TNT2 M64 / Radeon 9000 / MX 440-SE / 7300GT / Radeon 4670 / GTS 250 / Radeon 7950 / 660 Ti

They are not but kinda are.

 

In short:
Out of the Box: They won't work.

You need a Ryzen 1000 Series CPU or a Bulldozer based APU to flash the newest BIOS, then the 2000 series works.

 

But since the price difference isn't that huge, I don't think that its worth it.

B350 requires a BIOS update.

 

Look at the B450 Pro4 instead if you want guaranteed compatibility out of the box.

Good idea, in theory.

In practice the price of CPUs for that system is just too high so that it is actually cheaper and better to replace the Board with the CPU. 

Bad situation but that's how it is...

 

And the 8 and 9k Intel series is also incompatible, so that only leaves 6 and 7k series - wich are rather expensive.

I wouldn't want to buy a 4 Core CPU for 200€.
