Help with new build. AMD or Ryzen 400-500$

Hello fellow pc enthusiasts I'm looking to upgrade from my current i7 920 build and need help deciding what to go with.

I have a budget of around 400-500$ but I ONLY Need a Processor, Mobo, and Ram.

I've had trouble with deciding between AMD or Intel. I originally thought I would just go with a Ryzen 5 2600x but was told that it wouldn't totally be worth it without quad channel fast Ram. I had trouble getting that much ram and fitting into my budget. Is this true?

But these are the 2 builds I've come up with so far. https://pcpartpicker.com/user/Bizong/saved/#view=WT6hgs

I immensely appreciate any help deciding. Thank you!
