Looking to build my first gaming pc, want it for streaming and gaming. Any help would be appreciated.

This will surpass others in this budget.
I was thinking of this.
i5-6600 benchmark: http://cpu.userbenchmark.com/Intel-Core-i5-6600/Rating/3514

This Is Fairly similar to SquidZ Build however I opted for the i7 because people who are streaming or otherwise multitasking do see some slight benefits from an i7 as opposed to an i5. I Was gonna say go with a r9 380 but the 970 is a giant jump for around 100 bucks more. This only leaves you 30 bucks for a case but you can always downgrade to an r9 380 if you wanted to spend more on a case. I left the case out because it's your pc you have to find something that looks good to you.
A MUST-HAVE GREAT VALUE and a GREAT VALUE rated motherboard...
One of the top-performing r9 390 with Excellent VRM & VRAM Cooling: Double Dissipation + Ghost Thermal 3.0..
