Better off with 3200g if using igpu. If you have 3200g it isn't worth the upgrade and you're better off putting money into a GPU and upgrading to a real CPU later. Fewer shader cores, tmu, rops and tgp. So basically isn't as powerful and the only upgrade would be from the CPU core itself if CPU is what you need to go with the 5600x.

Doesn't the 5600g have the Vega 7 iGPU?
