Can I run games on high while streaming and recording? http://pcpartpicker.com/user/Sabataj/saved/W6Nbt6

Yes, however I would recommend upgrading to an i7 as it'll be better for multitasking i.e.- Running games while recording/streaming. I have the same gpu in my fiancées streaming machine and it plays most everything without a sweat at 1080p on high settings around 50-60 fps while streaming, that being said I haven't started up anything too demanding besides benchmarking software and a few older games like metro 2033 and such.

Another question should I upgrade my psu? And for the i7 is it essential to get it. Because I don't wanna spend that much more lol.

Yes, I have that gpu and it can pull quite a bit of wattage under load id recommend a 650W at least. I have an 850W in mine just in case I decide to oc my gpu or cpu.
The only reason I recommended the i7 is because it'll help with the Streaming/recording at the same time as playing. You may be fine with the i5 but you also may see some frame drops due to your pc trying to actively record your screen or stream it while you're gaming simultaneously. (I can't guarantee you'll have an issue but I did build my fiancées streaming pc a few weeks ago on the cheap and it's working great with an older i7.

Here's what she's got currently.
