Option 1 is better.
  • 3060 is 3-10% better than the RX6600 (more if you consider ray tracing).
  • The Option 1 mobo is better.
Are they the same cost?

the first option is more expensive , 73 dollars difference. the 2 options are the same cost if i replace the 3060 graphic for Gigabyte RTX 3050 GV-N3050GAMING OC-8GD but someone told me the 3060 is twice better than the 3050 so i thought it worth the 73 dollars. thanks for your reply. Is it ok just 256 ssd and 1 tb ? is it better than just 1 tb ssd?

What is the total price for each build and what country? A link always helps.

be aware that when you have an AMD system with AMD gpu drivers installed, there's a download utility called duu that you use to completely remove and other brands drivers before installing Nvidia drivers because just using windows uninstall won't completely remove the older previous drivers and there's a potential for a conflict when going from 1 brand like AMD to Intel and Nvidia and visaversa

i'm from israel this is the website i buy from https://tms.co.il/ (you have the american flag upward and left side for english)
the first 1 is 5202 shekels(it's our coin equal to 1625.625 dollars) and the second is 4601 shekels (1437 dollar) now i see i was wrong the difference is almost 200 dollars.
https://tms.co.il/builds/299415 this is the first
https://tms.co.il/builds/298794 this is the second.

So you're paying ~13% more for Option 1. I'd say that's about right considering the differences. If option 1 fits in your budget, you're getting your money's worth in additional gaming performance.

For the record, the front panel ventilation of that NX300 is horrendous. If/when you add more fan(s), that ventilation is only going to allow for 1 front fan to be effective. There just isn't enough open space to fully feed air to more than 1 fan.

Antec includes 1 fan with the NX300 set as exhaust on the rear panel. You may find yourself wanting a little extra airflow with that CPU/GPU. Adding 1 front fan as intake would probably suffice.
i'll look more into it, thanks alot. so i'll buy the first option.
