Switching from AMD hack to Intel

Hi all!

First time ever posting on reddit although I've been reading across this forum for years. I invested in a Ryzen system beginning of last year and intended to install MacOS on it, but since there were several vsts and plugins like waves or apps like lightroom that I couldn't get working I ended up using windows instead.

A little over a year later, I still miss Logic Pro X (used for years on a MBP) so thought I'd take another whack at the hack: I'm looking at the possibilities of switching to Intel and still use parts from my current system to keep the costs down. My system will primarily be used for music production and design (adobe suite). Also, I would not mind purchasing another case for the new hack so that I can keep my current ryzen build as a gaming rig. Then I'd use use my GPU & ram in both builds, just switching based on what system I'm using. I'd be using my Intel hack most of the time as I don't have that much time to play video games these days.

This is my current system: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/7VbsRk (CPU has the Wraith Spire Cooler)

Potential Intel build: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/PTtxDx (wouldn't mind a cheaper motherboard & cooler).

Based on my research, I believe this system would work. Does anyone have any recommendations? Maybe another way to tackle the problem? I'm basically looking for the cheapest (best?) way to switch to Intel using most of my current parts.
