As the title says i am looking to build a new rig but i don't know what CPU to choose I am between the Ryzen 5 2600 or Intel Core i5-9400F. What do you suggest?

Keep in mind i don't want to play games on Ultra or 4K.

If you can only choose those two CPUs purely for gaming at 1080p then the 9400F is your better option. Have you looked at the Ryzen 5 3600? It's better than both of those CPUs for gaming and general use at a small price difference.

In my county 3600 is kinda expensive and i am working on a very tight budget.
 
A balanced gaming build will budget about 2x the cost of the processor for the graphics card.
What is you combined budget for the two?
Most games are going to be limited by the graphics card, particularly at 2k/4k resolution.
