Budget Gaming Build $500 or less

I am starting to get more into building budge computers for people and was looking to get the best possible gaming build I could find for right around $500 that could run most games at 1080p medium or high settings. I've been working on a few different parts lists to keep as templates for future builds, and have a couple intel g4560 builds and a ryzen 3 build (I am still yet to make a ryzen PC). I have been trying to keep the parts constant from list, just changing the cpu. I was hoping I could get some advice to improve either of the parts lists or get some new ideas altogether. I just built a mini itx computer in the same case as the mini itx build and the silverstone sugo is an awesome case.

Ryzen Build - Fairly good, if you can for an extra bit of money get a B350m board to enable you to OC and higher clocked RAM as Zen performs a lot better with it. https://pcpartpicker.com/list/JDh4zM

M ATX G4560 - Decent, but again don't get super entry level DDR4 as you will see a significant boost with higher clockspeeds. You also may just want to find a more reliable PSU. https://pcpartpicker.com/list/w2B8Gf

M ITX G4560 - Again, don't get slow RAM. Also, you need atleast an extra case fan to keep air flowing in the tight space. https://pcpartpicker.com/list/Nq7fwV

My favourite one out of the 3. My favourite would be the Ryzen, overclocked on the B350M baord it will completely destroy the g4560 and will be way better at multi core and thread tasks.

Thank you so much, this is exactly what I was looking for. Glad you gave me input on all 3 as well:)
