Looking to build a PC for Streaming ($1000-$2000 price range)

Hello, so I am a complete and utter noob when it comes to building a PC. I've never done this before, but I am very interested in starting! I need help picking parts specifically for a gaming PC that I intend to use to start streaming on twitch. I've streamed occasionally on my laptop, but the thing will often struggle to run OBS and other programs. It's frustrating, and I'd rather just build a PC that can stream and play high quality games with no problem at all. SO! I would love to get some help putting together a list of computer parts that will fall within the range of $1,000-$2,000. I would REALLY appreciate your help. Thanks!
