How's my PC building adventure going!
Basically, I have two builds, that my PC building friends suggested in my budget, one being without Windows 10 (the advise from a second friend is to pirate it).
I don't know, if there's a big down side for that, so help me out and overall judge these two on how it was presented to me.

Yeah, I was thinking on adding a Windows 10 to the price, just buy it later. My budget roughly translates to 915$ from the currency of where I live. №2 friend was quite critical of №1 and insisted that's the best it can be in my budget.
I'm from Russia, so it's quite hard to ask about these things, but still want to make sure from different views if possible.
I'm not super up to date with specific components but I'm excited for you building your own PC! I build my first one a couple years ago and will never look back. I pirated windows for my build, it's a pain in the butt. I will buy it out right for my next build for sure. I also notice, in both your build options, that you only have 1 SSD for storage, 512G and 240G, in my experience those are going to fill up FAST. I would suggest a 1TB HDD to supplement your SSD, you can get HDD for very cheap these days.
This is a link to a 1TB HDD for $40 Canadian, for reference.
Good luck and I cant wait to see pics of your new baby!
When building a computer I'd always recommend intel. AMD has gotten better but intel seems to still handle games better. I know like if you plan on Emulating game consoles like the Nintendo 3ds intel does that well. but AMD suffers. That's just an example. I have no experience with Ryzen so it might be worth it. My last amd computer was built with AMD FX 8350. It still plays games today but not as many. I use my intel laptop for gaming and other things these days. My intel laptop was 800 bucks when i got it this past year. Plays everything from Kotor (2003) all the way to Mafia definitive edition which just came out a few months ago. As for windows Hellary i never buy it and I'm fine. I say if you can find windows 10 cheap go for it otherwise pirate it. 100 bucks is way too much for am os. But most of this is opinions or from experience. Good luck buddy.
