Opinions on Two Part Lists

Hi, so I came up with two builds for the same purposes, one AMD and one Intel. Both are pretty much the same prices with sales/discounts, so I just wanted to see some opinions on which build you prefer, as well as maybe a bit of mix and matching. Both builds are powerful enough/optimized for what I want them to do, at this point it's just picking the right parts.
