2600 will handle games like a champ for next 2-3 years. As mentioned if you will expand to streaming, it will still hold for now, and later on you might be able to switch it to 3'rd/4'th/5'th Ryzen series (as the AM4 socket still should be usable)
This cpu still have plenty of power. Only streaming, especially in 1440p+ might be to much for it.
gaming even at 4k without steamming, then 2600 will handle even 2080ti & ultra quality. (around 85% load) so there is a chance even next gen top GPU will not be handicapped by this CPU.
if you don't go for best in the stack, 2600 is safe bet.

Games are getting more demanding all the time and if you ever want to stream, more cores would be beneficial. 2700x is faster too and it has good boost speeds, 2600 would be close only if you overclock it.
