I am looking to build a gaming pc that can handle at least medium at 1080p (or high at 720p) with decent FPS and also capable of some productivity (e.g. light video editing, coding ,browsing) I am also looking to do a bit of over clocking.

Budget:
£600

Must include:
Peripherals (e.g. monitor, keyboard, mouse)
Wireless networking (it would be a pain to route an Ethernet cable to my room)

Nice to have’s:
Dedicated graphics card
Rgb
Ssd

I have assembled a parts list myself here but wanted some advice from more experienced builders (it’s my first).
 
This is about the best that I can do with that budget.

The i3 is going to be faster for gaming than the 2200G. The 2200G has a future upgrade path that is better than the i3, meaning you will be able to update the BIOS and run the eventual Ryzen 4000 series in it as well as the current 3000 series.
 
I really don't think the 3400G is worth £170. Especially if the end-goal is to have a dGPU in the system ASAP.

Mobo - MSI MAX series for guaranteed out-of-the-box Ryzen 3000 compatibility
SSD - Better than the Crucial P1
Case - Better and tempered glass instead of acrylic window
PSU - Better
Monitor - 24" IPS 40-75Hz FreeSync via DP and HDMI in case you end up with an Nvidia GPU.
