I'm on a low budget (£300-£400) on my gaming PC so I'm starting out with an APU for now and looking to add a graphics card in the future. Is the MSI B450M PRO-M2 a good motherboard for the Ryzen 2200g?

It should work just fine for that CPU and most any graphics card you can imagine. But do be aware the lack of heatsinking on the VRM FET's will limit CPU upgrade options in the future.
What CPU would be the maximum upgrade I could add to this motherboard? Can it handle Ryzen 2600 or 3600?

I know people are running the 3600 on MSI B450 Tomahawks, not sure how similar they are. There are new APUs out (3 series, though really Ryzen 2) that would give a little bit more ompf to your system.

I think a 3600(X) or 2600(X) would do fine; especially the 3600(X) because Zen 2 is so much more efficient. But an 8 core is going to be limited with overclocking really not recommended. And a 3900X will probably not achieve near it's potential even in full stock configuration.

RUSerious: Tomahawk's are nothing like this board; Tomahawk's have probably the best VRM design in any budget AM4 board. It can handle even a 3900X overclocked.
