I have build my First PC. Actually 2 PCs. Its for my friends office. Used for Accounting works, multiple tab browsing, MS Office and other not much demanding softwares. He asked for "Future Proof" around 6 - 8 years. So, i have chosen based on future in mind.

First one is much better, Future proof ? No such beast, much will depend on what it's going to be used for,

Its office PC. The 1st one is a Server PC. The works are Accounting Software (TALLY), MS-Word, MS-Excel, and online works (so few tabs active all the time). Thats it. Not much.

Solid enough for those jobs although server could use some more storage, you could ad a hard disk to it.
Thank You for your valuable suggestion. I am intending to add a 1TB SATA SSD in a year time. Most of the files saved are excel sheet, word documents, TALLY data, pdf, jpeg, etc. But in an auditing firm the files will add up quickly very soon.

fr basic office tasks, I thiink both Pzcs ae pretty decent.

the first PC is a little under powered for a server, though.

It would cost more, but assuming you aren't going to a rack-mount type of server, I'd step up to an r7 CPU (2700 or 3700X), and add a cheap GPU since the r7s don't have iGPU, (a GT 710, 730, or 1030 is plenty - whatever you find cheapest) and a 2.5" 2 TB SSD for the data.
 
Your builds are reasonable.

I have some thoughts:

1. Nothing is "future proof" unless you can forecast your needs 6-8 years out.

2. For an office pc dual monitors are a huge productivity enhancer. Or, consider an extra wide monitor.

3. Do not go cheap on the psu. Corsair cx/vs units are not highly regarded.
Pick tier 3 or better from a list such as this:
Look for seasonic focus 450w for example.

4. For a quality ssd, I would stick with samsung or intel. They make their own components and can better control quality.
