Overpriced. I would also change at least CPU, GPU, motherboard, memory and PSU.

If you are gaming then I'd imagine the second one would suit you. Photoshop, Video editing etc... will benefit from that Ryzen build. If you are doing a mix between all those tasks then Ryzen offers the best upgrade path.

Personally, I'd go for Ryzen, even if it can't play games as well as I don't particularly like the i5's compared to a 1500X. This is my opinion so it's entirely up to you.

At this stage buying anything core i3 or even core i5 seems to be a total joke and mistake unless you are buying a laptop.

 

With the Ryzen 5 series packing a lot of punch and the Pentium G4560 being a low priced powerhouse it brings in a lot of factors one must consider.

 

For a pure gaming only rig the Pentium G4560 is actually a really great bang for your buck CPU delivering performances on par or better than the cheapest i3 and would be cheaper than the i5.

For a PC that can do nearly everything the Ryzen 5 1500X is not a bad choice and with a little more cash one can get the Ryzen 5 1600 that can be great for media production on a really tight budget.

I would just ignore anything Core i anything right now

I wouldn't go for the pentium, dual cores are on their way out.

Perhaps however for the price the Pentium is still incredible despite being only two cores and low thread count plus the fact that they can hyperthread is a good positive

They will be phased out but it is going to be a while considering that the majority have 2 core PC's still http://store.steampowered.com/hwsurvey/cpus/

Steam survey is hardly representation from current machines.

I know at least 5 people with octa core (or more CPU) that do not use Steam. That includes me.

Perhaps but dual core does still remain popular on budget builds.

Given the fine performance of AMD's recent 4-6-8 core Ryzens at a very nice price, it would indeed be hard to fathom recommending an i3 or i5 barring a super combo deal, perhaps....

 

Many of AMD's pre-Ryzen budget 6 and 8 core cpus 'sounded faster' (than comparable i5 processors) based on pure GHz number and number of cores; measured performance in a variety of applications, games especially, told the true tale. (There was even considerable debate as to the true definition of 'cpu core' a few years back, as far as AMD's claim of '8 cores', etc...)

 

Sample of debate on definition of 'core'.... http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/363278-28-core
