    I'm building a new rig which I'll use for general applications only. Need your opinion on the Ryzen 5 2400G processor with build in Radeon RX Vega II graphics.

    Thanks

    It's a good Cpu and it also provides quite decent Graphics, it will be fine for a general purpose PC.

    Do you have a Motherboard picked out yet ? As long as you get a reasonably modern one the Bios should support that Cpu.

    There's a list of compatible motherboards here :- http://www.cpu-upgrade.com/CPUs/AMD/Ryzen_5/2400G_motherboards.html

    I had an MSI B450 M Plus AMD in mind.

    I am not a fan of msi however for just general use they should be OK. I also prefer asus, gigabyte, or asrock boards.
    Ryzen builds are easier today than when ryzen was first released. The first gen ryzen processors and first gen motherboards were somewhat picky regarding ram AND getting ram to run at rated speed. This has been fixed with bios updates and newer designed motherboards.
