first system build has an SSD the second the SSD was sacrificed to pay for a faster CPU with more cores.
you can get by with 8GB for just gaming but more will be needed of you wish to stream and game.

wrong memory choice, this is what I meant for the second build with no SSD.

what do you need the system to do? what is your monitor resolution, do you expect the monitor to be upgraded and if so to what resolution and refresh?

the large thread count and the fast storage should help you do what you need at the desired resolution. IDK the PSU you had but a fresh PSU is rarely a bad idea when upgrading/
