Looking for a sold/good psu that can fit in a Fractal Design Focus G Case and can support a gpu later (560 or 1050 ti) down the line if i choose to do so.
1050 Ti: https://pcpartpicker.com/product/Qb8j4D/seasonic-focus-gold-450w-80-gold-certified-semi-modular-atx-power-supply-ssr-450fm (254W for a 2400G build with a HDD, SDD, 16GB RAM, normal ATX board) ($65)
560: https://pcpartpicker.com/product/KmgzK8/seasonic-focus-gold-550w-80-gold-certified-semi-modular-atx-power-supply-ssr-550fm (269W) ($73)
Thanks for your help. The psu and the gpu are like the worst parts when it comes to building a pc (imho) .
Either of those PSU's are great quality and should last a long time...even for higher end GPUs. I'd personally go 550w. A little off topic, but relevant...when you're looking at a GPU upgrade from the 2200g, keep in mind the RX570 is currently a great bang for the buck. You can get also 50% better performance in some games for cheaper vs the 1050ti.
Currently cheaper than the cheapest 1050ti on PCPartpicker - https://pcpartpicker.com/product/tyNypg/gigabyte-radeon-rx-570-4gb-gaming-4g-video-card-gv-rx570gaming-4gd

The GTX 1050Ti is faster than the RX 560, and a 450 Watt PSU is more than enough for both of these GPUs.
