Im wondering which if these builds would be the best for video + photo editing, playing Fortnite (only up to 60fps) and virtualization.

R5 1600 unless you can push for a 1050 with the r7 1700.

The R5 1600 can do what you want just fine, and it will allow you to have a better gpu for games as well. I recommend a 1050ti if you can afford it.

Do you have a specific budget at all?

For photo editing you can easily do it with the 1600, and the 1050 would do you very well in fortnite.

But IF you have the budget, go for the 1700, and get a GTX 1050 with it.

My budget is around £600

Ok so that's about $745 USD

Yeah your best bet would be the 1600 and the 1050

Ryzen 5 1600 is gonna be enough for your needs, the first build is much more well balanced than the second one. Consider getting 16gb because you're editing video, depending on how heavy your needs are. If budget is tight, keep 8gb and upgrade later on to 16gb if you feel like you need it, RAM is very expensive right now, pretty much double than 2016 I would switch the mobo to a b350 asrock pro4 if you want to save some money, yours is good and has more features but they perform around the same. Consider adding an SSD

I will add an ssd later and more ram

Adding an SSD later on is fine but it can be a pain because the idea is to have the OS there. If you leave that for later, it's gonna be a big headache to deal with most third party cloning software (which are usually faulty, assuming your ssd doesn't come with the manufacturer's software) or do a clean windows install, but if that's not a concern it's fine.

Should I swap the HDD for a 240gb SSD.

You can if you're completely sure you won't be filling it up (As in, you're not the kind of person who installs games or lots of software and videos) In that case , if that's enough space for you, yes.

But most of the time it's recommended to have an SSD and a HDD at the same time.
