You can't afford a system that will do what you want with new parts.

Either get more money, get a console, or get used parts.

All of these, except for maybe the last list, make no sense at all.

 

AMD's offerings make each of these absolutely redundant.

Sorry bro, you oughta read on the new AMD chips.

Also, your storage configs make no sense for gaming (nvme offers no benefits), and I wouldn't put RGB as  recommended RAM. It really is a choice, and an expensive one at that.

 

Your heart is in the right place, but try to read some more before posting a "guide".

Uh... If by ripping people off you mean giving many times the performance for less money than yeah, sure

32GB ram for moderate gaming, 64GB for heavy gaming and 128GB for extra heavy gaming? How do you explain this? What advantage do I get from these insane amounts of ram?

That's just jumped out at me, but there's so much wrong with these builds.

as opposed to intel, who charges a ton more for almost the same performance?

 

you are aware that AMD hardware is significantly cheaper right?

A quick thing of what is wrong with the first build for starters:

 

1st build
 

Motherboard: it's fine
Cpu: amd has better alternatives for the same or lower price no reason to get this one

Cooler: The stock cooler is actually fine for the i3 or if you go amd the stock cooler is fine for any cpu it comes with
Ram: 32gb of rgb ram? That's a lot of ram that you only would need if you were doing heavy creative tasks or whatnot 16gb for games is fine or for a budget system that this is probably supposed to be 8 will do
Gpu: hd 630 will play minecraft and that would be it really makes no sense for gaming
Storage: Just get a larger sata ssd drive
Psu: Sure overkill but sure
Case: bad airflow better alternatives

What if I want to use this for workstation tasks, since it's clearly much more suited for those? Is that allowed?

For the second build:

 

Motherboard: you can get things half the price and not notice a diference in terms of performance or usefull features. You do give up on some bling but again there are board that are cheaper that will do that too

Cpu: Ryzen sure slightly worse single core performance but having those extra threads for a cheaper price is really nice if you have lets say a stream open or something on a second screen. If getting the 9700 get the k as you got a z series board so you can at least oc.

Cooling: Your included cooler is nice but going ryzen you can opt to just use the stock cooler again also other alternative coolers that are a bit better.
Ram: 16gb is plenty again
Gpu: really imbalanced compared to the cpu choice. At least get a rtx 2060 range card or like a rx 5600 xt to start here

Storage: Again just a big sata ssd will be plenty. Also that silicon power ssd seems to have a rather low endurance rating

Psu: get the one from the first build
Case: airflow issues don't get it

3rd build:


Motherboard: it's a fine board again but cheaper will do

Cpu: for gaming this is great. Sure there is a ryzen alternative but as it's gaming only this one will still do a bit better. Again get the k series so you can oc as you got a z series board anyways

Cooling: good cooler
Ram: 16gb is enough again but maybe 32gb if you wanted for some reason. As it's gaming only 16 will be plenty once more

Gpu: any rtx2080ti will do no need to go for that one specifically

Storage: seems good from the little info I could find need more input on that tho
Psu: sure why not but look at the tier list

Case: poor airflow compared to other options and better out there for the same price

 

Hope this helps you in making builds in the future

I'd wait for the Ryzen 1600 AF to become available.  It's basically a Ryzen 2600.  

 

And definitely don't spend money on a retail Windows license.  Find a cheap OEM one on eBay.  Then use that extra $100 on some better hardware.

No on the motherboard. Spend 5-10$ more on a motherboard with B450 chipset. It's better quality and will allow you to overclock.

It will probably also have 4 memory slots.

Speaking of memory, one stick is bad idea, you get a performance boost when using 2 sticks. 

50$ on that video card is kinda bad deal.  Better save some more money and buy a RX 570 for 100-110$ (you can find used ones for maybe 80$) ... it's miles better.

 

You can use Windows without activation for at least 30 days. You can also buy keys for 10-15$ online for it if you don't mind the gray area.

Actually, the AMD 1600 you have in that list appears to be the new 1600 AF part so that's good to go.  

 

And I'd listen to @mariushm recommendations.  He knows his stuff.

I need a gaming desktop and I’m not rich. Simple as that. I’m a teenager on a tight budget and want a desktop for gaming. I already have a laptop. But everyone knows the problems with a laptop. But I want something (a desktop) brand new and cheap that can run Minecraft Java at a solid 120 FPS. Any suggestions?

If you buy new at that price point you probably looking at a Ryzen 3200G

 

If you go used you can go with 4th gen i5 and a RX570/580 (depends on where you live)
