CPU recomandation for a gtx 1060/rx 580

Hi, could anyone help me decide on a cpu for a 1060 or 580. I wont be editing videos nor streaming.

I also dont plan to upgrade the gpu nor the cpu in this build for the next 5 years, so im trying to keep the bottleneck potential low. 

In my country intel prices have exploded, an i3 8100 costing as much as 250$, hard or imposible to find it under 175$.

i'll use this pc mainly for gaming but i will do some c++ programing as well.

The only thing i'm going to upgrade is the ram, starting with 2 sticks of 4 gb each, and later adding another set if needed.

Ryzen 5 2600 or Ryzen 7 1700, about the same price; 1700 is more cores/threads if you stream but 2600 is slightly better clocks & IPC

Here are the prices for both intel and amd processors here:

ryzen 2200g, 1200, 1300x = 110$

ryzen 5 2400g = 160$

ryzen 5 1600x, 1400 = 172$

ryzen 5 1500x = 182$

ryzen 5 1600 = 200$

ryzen 5 2600 = 210$

As I said intel's cpus are out of my price range (max 250$) and I saw people pairing a ryzen 3 1200 with a 1060 without a problem, so again, which cpu is the best in term of pricing as well for this gpu. I dont want to upgrade the cpu nor the gpu so dont bother pairing the 1060 with a ryzen 7 or such.

I can tell that too but its the most expensive one too. That's what I'm asking you guys to help me with, choosing the right cpu for this build. Mostly gaming but extra cores/threads wont do any bad. But I really dont want to buy an amazing cpu that gonna stay at 50 or lower load in most games, I want to take full advantage of the money I'm spending.

at that price, i'm sure the performance you get is well worth the money, plus a cpu not at full load at rated at the same tdp will likely use less power over time. your call of course.
