Any alternative from 2xxx series ? what about 2400g ? or 2200g ? i am not intrested to use its vega i will be using dedicated gpu
also it would be helpfull if you can identify me which chipset to buy in case after 2,3 years i want to jump to like 3600x or above 4xxx if they had a same chipest + socket
 
R5 2600(x) would be a viable pair with that GPU, they are getting cheaper by day. Any B450 chipset MB would be compatible with present BIOS version and upgreadable to 3000 any maybe even 4000 series Ryzen by simple BIOS update.

Well a 2600X with a B450 motherboard should be around 250 USD
If you are okay with having a micro ATX or mini ITX board, it can even be 200 USD
ASRock makes some good low priced motherboards, might want to check some of their boards out.
