It depends upon the graphics card u are paring it with. If u plan on putting an RTX 3000 series card or any that requires PCI-E gen 4(u can find this out on Techpowerup site) then go with Ryzen as it has PCI-E gen 4. If not then u can also go with a i7.

For the Ryzen is a R9 380 and for the I7 it's a GTX 1050 ti.

They are comparable.
Both have 12 threads.
8700K might be slightly better for gaming because of a better single thread performance, but the 3600 will do better for streaming.
For office stuff, you want a ssd above all.
The graphics cards are comparable.
I would not be inclined to buy either.

And I think another point is the DDR4 speeds, for the 3600 it can go to up 3200Mhz since 8700k only go in normal conditions 2666mhz, right?
