Question Need help with arranging my junkyard of hardware

I have a lot of mixed junk hardware which I managed to built into few PCs in my house (Not just for me)
Now I need to add another PC, because I bought two WD Red Plus 4TB to finally have a dedicated PC as a NAS (I will simply connect it to the router and mount in other PCs as network drive)
Right now I have a B450 motherboard with 3200g. But, I want to use this PC as the NAS (+HTPC, because there is a place to sit near the router)
What should I do if I'm on a tight budget?
  1. Buy a Ryzen 3 3350G Pro (some weird OEM CPU sold by a retailer near me) and pair it with the B450 motherboard, for $155 (+The A320 motherboard for the 3200g for total of $200)
  2. Maybe get an Intel system instead (i3-10105F + cheap H410 for $175)
Anything else?
Thanks!

The 10105 is going to be faster.
Thank you, how faster? Any example? assuming I upgrade the GPU in the future and I am no longer bottlenecked by the GPU, how big of a difference it is in gaming?

And if not for gaming - I am able to OC the 3350, and I actually have a very large cooler (rated for 200W) - will an OCed 3350 be able to come close to the 10105F? Or still not

*Edit: I read the 3350G does not OC well so nvm
