I love this pc. I used this pc is for my workstation, not for gaming house. I am a furniture designer, so i often use heavier application like AutoCAD, Inventor, Solidworks, and 3ds Max + V-Ray. I my list is Intel Core i3-8300, but the problem here to choose add on GPU to support above applications, and of course, a low end GPU like GTX 750Ti will under perform when come to these 3D modelling application. When AMD Ryzen 3 2200G came out, i must try this APU, and so far, the result is unexpectedly better, it s like i3-8300 + GTX 1060.

When you choose Ryzen 3 or 5 or 7, for better performance, do not pair it with A320 chipset, it will limit your processor high boost and your RAM speed as well. so go for B450 for ITX or MTX option, or X450 for ATX.

For multitasking like me, RAM 8Gb is lowest limit.


Next target:  To upgrade to Ryzen 7 gen 3 ( i am waiting ) and add on GPU ( most likely RX 590 ), and of course to add more RAM, up to 32 gb.
