Help choosing a decent budget cooking knife

Good choices!  The chef's knife combo better matches my skill set than the santokus.  If you're buying them for work in a pro kitchen or particularly want to develop "pro" type knife skills, than go with the chef's.  The preference is partly efficiency, partly utility, and partly peer pressure.  But a lot of people like santokus, and there's no good reason they or you shouldn't. 

Afterall, the main thing is sharpness, and you've set your level pretty high with the combination of the MACs and CC.

Without knowing more about how you use a knife now and how you want to use one in the future, I can't really advise you on which set would be better for you.  They're both very good.
