Build Advice My future AMD Ryzen Build and Rebuild with parts reuse to keep costs in check.

So I do plan to build a new Ryzen 3800X system while reusing and scavenging parts from my existing Ryzen R5-1600 system. At which point I will also get new parts where needed so that I end up with two working systems for a modest overall build price.
Here is my plan, feedback and suggestions are requested. What would you all change. Reused parts will be in bold while new parts will be in an italic font.

Since I have two Seasonic S12II PSU's I may pull the Thermaltake TR2 600W PSU out of the Ryzen R5-1600 build and replace it with a used Seasonic S12II PSU.
The total combined cost for the new parts in order to have two working computer systems is: $1093.35 USD

The idea is to have two working systems, gaming is not a priority but I do play some less demanding titles from time to time.
The R5-1600 System would be given as a gift to my dad.
