Hey!

So basically I'd like to have 2 PC, 1 for gaming: mostly FPS like CSGO and maybe MMO in the near future. I would also like another separate PC for streaming those games and maybe video capture them for youtube use, although I'm not very sure if that is possible.

Midtower, Intel and Nvidia are prefered all within a budget of $1300 maybe can go up to $1500 as long as they add up to that amount.

Just build 1 nice machine and use Nvidia Shadowplay. No need for a second machine to capture/stream.

I have a roughly 1000 dollar system (including blue yeti mic and webcam and other streaming equipment) That runs most games at 1080p at mid-high or high to ultra and streams fine. I also got some parts used so that made it more affordable.

EDIT: Forgot to Mention, US Dollars for mine.

If they really wanted to do what they asked, i would use something like a HAF stacker case, 2 x mini itx. OR they could get one that is a full tower with a stacker on top of it Here

I noticed that you suggested a "K" CPU meaning it can be OC'ed would that be a problem with a 650W PSU?
