The 2200G is a LOT cheaper and is as fast as the 2400G with a good OC, so changed to a 2200G and a good cooler to keep the temps down. Changed to a faster RAM module as the Ryzen processors really like fast RAM. Get another 1x8gb in the future if needed.

Here's a good review of the 2200G and 2400G:

The single stick of memory defeats the faster speed and my build above is a much better gaming PC because of the video card also a better processor.

Yeah, missed your build for some reason.
Regarding the single stick, it would be so he can add another stick in the near future as the 2200G has no dedicated gpu memory. So the more RAM the better in this case. Your build is faster, this one is cheaper as he can tweak this a bit and lower the price even more.

Your not going to be doing much gaming without a video card the built in graphics are close to a GTX 1030.
