[SOLVED] Help me decide

Hi,so this is only for gaming:
Which one will be better:
https://pcpartpicker.com/list/n6yYXb <- this one in my country costs around 300$
or:
https://pcpartpicker.com/list/B2LM7T <- this one in my country costs around 380$
I personally think the i3 is better in gaming,and its the cheaper option for me.I will be pairing the cpu with a r9 380 4gb.I just want to know if the RYZEN is worth 80$ more.Im on a very tight budget as you can see
Thoughts?

Hmm... the AMD stuff is expensive at the moment. At normal pricing you would be better looking at a newer Ryzen 3 cpu to go with that motherboard, the 3100 should normally only be 100 USD but none listed as in stock (?!)... 3300X also only a little more but also currently out of stock. The 12nm 1600 (effectively a 2600) isn't a bad cpu, and the extra cores / threads might come in handy in some games but most titles will run better on the i3 - I wouldn't pay $80 more for the 1600 if I'm honest and both platforms offer you plenty of faster options to upgrade to.

"I wouldn't pay $80 more for the 1600 if I'm honest and both platforms offer you plenty of faster options to upgrade to. " <- thats what im looking for,thank you.Both 3100 and 3300x are in the same price range as the 1600AF,so its a no go.Normally,i could just go with a A320 board and call it a day,but i would really be missing out on performance,since i couldnt overclock a ryzen cpu.I will wait for more responses,before i pull the trigger.Thanks for help
