As the title mention.

Which is better for the money.

I5-9400F + ASUS H310M-K or Ryzen 5 2600 + MSI A320M ?

Both used.

It would be a bit of a toss up. Depends a lot on the game.

9400F has slightly better single thread performance, but the 2600 has SMT so 6 threads vs 12. Later titles may run more smoothly if not outright faster on the 2600, but older games will likely run faster on the 9400F.
