This is what I would do, got you a 6 core since streaming is hard on the cpu, and at 1080p a 970 is enough power so no need for a 980ti or a fury. Also nice case with a fully modular power supply. If you want to drop it down 200ish you could go with the i5 6600k and a z170 board, but at that point you lose 2 cores and hyper threading I don't see it being worth the loss. Even dropping down to a 6700k you would only save around $50, most of that being on the motherboard, and that is really not worth the loss, for $50 you would lose 2 cores plus those 2 cores hyper threaded.

A standard quad core i7 is more than enough for streaming, there's no need to go with the x99 i7. Especially since it doesn't game as well as the 6700k

I put on here with it switched to the I7 6700k, the main reason I don't think its worth it at the current moment is that

  1. 6700k is more expensive than the 5820k

  2. 2 more cores than 6700k

  3. 6700k was having availability issues
