New build help needed

I am about to do a new build and am looking at either the Ryzen 5 2400G or the Ryzen 5 2600 paired to a B450 MSI Tomahawk MB (or similar)

I need to be able to run my DVI monitor in conjunction with an HDMI link to a TV Would you recommend 2400G as suitable for this as I do not need a powerful GPU card or would i be better with the 2600 and a budget GPU card (eg GT 1030)  And are there any memory constraints depending on which processor I choose I am thinking of 2 x 8GB and am taken with either LED or RGB however this is not of major importance

look for Samsung B-Dies (easy to find) - get cheap ones
on 2400G you need to OC them - on 2600 you can use XMP

or simply wait - there will be a 3000er Ryzen with 6C/12T AND a iGPU = this will rock hard in any system

PC: R7 2700X @PBO + RX 580 4G (1500MHz/2000MHz CL16) + 32G DDR4-3200CL14 + 144hz 1ms FS P + 75hz 1ms FS
Laptop: R5 2500U @30W + RX 560X (1400MHz/1500MHz) + 16G DDR4-2400CL16 + 120Hz 3ms FS

I have 2400G, I plug my monitor HDMI, and I plug VGA to the 50" TV, extended monitor and it works. With 16 GB RAM @2666 MHz I don't find problems, the motherboard works good with its native build in ports (A320M-S2H)
You can build the PC with a 2600 + GPU and it will goes good too, only check the model of GPU with DVI + HDMI ports 'cause there are old and new models , with or without the ports.
