Is my PC enough to make games in UE4?
Pentium G 3220
HD 4870 GPU
Or is this going to be a big problem?
between FX 6300 and i3 4160 @ 3.6ghz which cpu would be better and by how much? also is i3 3.6ghz way better than pentium G 3220 @ 3ghz?

Those specs might be the low end of runtime support, but for development they likely will not do at all (the 4870 isn't even a DX11 card).
Here are my recommendations:
The CPU is not great, and will give you some headaches, but it'll be the least of your worries for now. The PG3220 is a Core i3 3220 with some features removed (HT being one of them). Between those two you listed, I'd go with the FX6300, as you'll benefit most from the extra threads vs extra single thread performance (power needs are higher in the latter though, so you might need a new PSU). You'll want to kick it up to at least 8GB of RAM. Development always requires more memory than your target hardware. The GPU is the biggest issue here. I'd recommend something around a GTX550ti as a minimum (or 6850 on the AMD side).
