2200g is way weaker BUT have gpu.
its good only for small builds without dedicated GPU.
2600 is ~3x as much cpu power but no gpu inside.
for gaming 2200g will not be enough so 2600 + something like 1660GTX is good choice.

Depending on where you live you may found the Ryzen 5 1600 "AF" which is the Ryzen 5 2600 with just a tiny slower speed diference (almost the same performance ~2% dif at most), usually sell at amazon https://www.amazon.co.uk/Processeur-AMD-RYZEN5-Socket-YD1600BBAFBOX/dp/B07XTQZJ28/ref=sr_1_2?crid=2HFSRMAD770TI&keywords=ryzen+5+1600af&qid=1583068744&sprefix=ryzen+5+1600,aps,396&sr=8-2.

Just make sure is the AF, and make sure you have a compatible motherboard (BIOS update will be enough, sometimes you don't even need it)

cheers
