This is a far better build than the other two. Note that both builds above are missing a case. 

At this price point there are only two motherboards worth pairing a 3600 with: Asrock B550M Pro4 or Aorus Pro B550M. The only difference between them is that the Pro4 has a 1200 audio codec, while the Aorus Pro has a slightly better 1220 codec. Also, don't use HDDs anymore. You can get 1 TB of very good storage by eliminating that HDD. Most people have a hard time using up 1 TB so I'd start there.
