Hello. I wish to replace my 8 year old PC with a new one. I wish to buy the latest Ryzen 5 3400G CPU but I am most confused regarding the motherboard. I have a working but 6 year old Corsair 500w PSU that I would like to reuse if compatible with the new config.

Thanks for the recommendation. Will this motherboard work out of the box with 3rd gen Ryzen 5 3400G CPU?
Nope, in this initial stage of Ryzen 3000 series processors, you would need to get it updated and most retailers would help you do it.

I was planning to buy it online though. I am now thinking I'd rather wait a few months for updated motherboards to come on the market.
