The second, more expensive one is better due to the unlocked motherboard and faster memory as it makes a big difference in performance.

Although depending on budget I'd just build it as even if it isn't much cheaper you'll get better quality parts.

This would be a excellent 1080P or 1080P UW build.

Thanks again

Ok, so the A320 is ok if you prefer not to overclock but I'd swap the memory to the 3000mhz version as the difference between 2400 & 3000 can be like a 15 FPS difference. I think WoW does a bit better with Nvidia so the 1070 would be the better card, in general it's much better as well.

If you don't care to overclock I'd also look at the i5-9400F.

As long as motherboard manufacturer's put out BIOS updates to support them the motherboard should support the 3rd gen (2019) & 4th gen (2020) Ryzen CPU's.
