I should have clarified a few things
-The case i already have and plan to switch to the master fan argb for full RGB
-the ram i specifically chose rgb ram

I was just wondering best option between Intel or Ryzen i know that Ryzen has been on the "ryze" and just wondering if the direct price counterpart which would be best with the only changes being mobo and cpu

Thank you all for your responses so would it be safe to say if anything upgrade cpu to 3700 or 3800?
Among your two builds, the Ryzen will serve you better with its extra threads handy for a lot of games. The 3700x, will perform more or less similar for now but will last you more in the future as games become more heavy. 3800x well I wont bother.
 
For purely gaming, I would do this...

3700X:
For your use case, what does the 3700X have over the 3600? Will you actually be able to use the extra 2 cores and 4 threads, or will those mostly go unused?

3800X:
Has NOTHING over the 3700X. It doesn't even overclock any better. You're paying more for a bloody number(8).

I rebuilt my system last year and stuck it out with Intel (i5-9600k) and while I can't complain about the build, there is a part of me that wanted to go with the Ryzen 2 series instead. That said, no matter how you swing it, AMD's line of chips are cheaper and offer more bang for your buck. The Ryzen 3 series' chipsets also offers PCI-E 4.0 support, which is yet another plus.'

If you want to go with Intel, I'd go with the i7-9700K for a few more dollars instead. It's sitting at $350 right now and that's a really good price point per performance.
