Ryzen G is basically Ryzen+integrated graphics.To make most use of Ryzen G one needs at least 2 ram sticks of 3000MHz.Rest all is fairly similar between Ryzen G & non-G versions.

What future upgrade are you aiming for?In case of AMD you should be able to easily upgrade cpu/mobo for next 2-3 years.Your usage is simple so I doubt you would even feel the need to upgrade your processor/mobo in next 2-3 years.Ram & hdd can always be added on any mobo.

ryzen 1600--10000
asrock b450 pro 4--7000 Best B450 mobo under 10k for any ryzen processor,if you want asus then only get asus Tuf B450M Pro gaming.
8gb adata D30 3200MHz ddr4 ram--3300 16gb ram is only required if doing some ram intensive work or gaming.
crucial mx500 250gb ssd--3300 NVMe is not really needed for such systems as difference between a cheap NVMe & a good ssd is negligible in practical scenarios.
https://www.amazon.in/GeForce-128-bit-Gaming-Graphics-ZT-T16500F-10L/dp/B07QF1H9YR/ should be able to get it ~10-11k during coming great shopping sale from 29th sep with sbi 10% discount offer.

Since almost all of the boards we tend to suggest are out of stock and you don't intend to OC ever, I would say any board is fine for this APU. Just buy a board which has VRM heatsink, at least.
Ofcourse, if you find these available anywhere, go for it.
ASrock B450 Pro 4/Fatal1ty gaming
B450 TUF M pro

3600mhz is too much for 3400G, better save some money there by going for 3000/3200mhz sticks.

No dont go with Fatality Gaming
Either with Asus or Asrock or Gigabyte
Depending upon the after market service.
But I personally prefer MSI motherboards since they have better VRMs and VRM cooling than others.

Yeah, I have seen that video few months back.
And I have seen all the links you posted in that thread before.
And by the way, that AM4 tier list by Cautilus is updated since your post. Feel free to check.

I don't remember seeing anywhere mentioning that Fatal1ty is not good. In fact, I see it's even fine for 3600x.

Mine is personal experience with Asrock Mobo and their RMA is terrible in India.
MSI is much better than them as a matter of fact.

Sure I buy that statement. Personally I find Asus and Gigabyte better with regards to after sales service. But what to do when you don't have good boards from them.
Since here it's an non OC APU, anything would be fine. Even if OP finds Fatal1ty or Pro 4 available, and still choose to stick with Asus or Gigabyte wouldn't be an issue.
