to complement the basics. Oddly the second set of RAM doesn't appear in PCPartPicker for some reason; the case also doesn't which I've left blank. Performance-wise the first one with 16GB of RAM is preferable as games become more demanding. I suspect you'd find 8GB limiting sooner rather than later.

Personally I would go with:

I've left out most of the peripherals you have linked like the case, wifi and keyboard. (You have a mouse, right?) But I estimate the price of this suggestion is about the same as your second build. Perhaps there are other suggestions from resident builders.
 
Seems okay overall.

Technically Vega 56 would be more than sufficient for 1080p60 gaming. I would probably prefer a better quality supply than the EVGA 600B to use with the Vega 56, and would certainly suggest something in Seasonic's Focus Plus range; but it may depend on your budget.

Cooler-wise: https://www.kitguru.net/components/cooling/dominic-moass/arctic-freezer-33-esports-one-air-cooler-review/5/
The Cooler Master Hyper 212 is still a good budget option. Though I run my Ryzen 5 1600 with the stock cooler without any problems. If you don't plan to do any major overclocking you could probably save that bit of money and invest it elsewhere (like the PSU).

I'm sure others will have opinions and advice.
