Processor upgrade plan

    Right now I have an AMD Ryzen 3 2200G. It's adequate but I can do better and my plan is to get an upgrade asap. When I get my next stimulus check from the Gov I'll pull the trigger on it.

    The 2200G is a four core/four thread and it's ok but I could use a tad bit more firepower so my plan is this. I'm getting the Ryzen 5 3600 and a graphic card. This CPU has 6 cores/12 threads. More firepower and for a decent price. Plus I get to add my own GPU. If the Ryzen 5 4600G is out I might get that but it's going to be dependent on the GPU in the chip.

    Might as well be written in Martian.

    If if were I reckon the universal translator might have concerted it to "Graphics coprocessor card for Intel based motherboards" which may be slightly more informative. :D

    I should have taken the time to tell the entire story in English next time. LOL.. But then again, I am a computer nerd from the late 70's.

    My plan is to get a new, better processor and at the same time get a graphic card that works with my Asus motherboard. At the moment I think getting the processor that's available for purchases is the best route to go. I know it will work with my current motherboard.
