Guidance Needed: £2,000 Budget (Flexible) First Gaming/Streaming Build (Silent/Quiet if possible)

As a personal goal for this year I wanted to build my own PC. After initial research I selected and was gifted some parts to work with and felt comfortable with how the part selection was progressing, however after receiving conflicting information on what I need for my use I lost confidence and stalled my project. I want to continue but need some guidance on the best way to proceed.

  • Budget: My current budget rests at £2,000 for the tower but is flexible based on income from my part-time job.
  • Location: United Kingdom
  • Use: Primarily I want to make this build for Gaming, with the ability to Stream on Twitch and Edit Video's for Youtube to explore both platforms a potential stress relief.

Additional Notes:

  • My current Broadband is Wireless and it's not possible to connect it directly to my build.
  • While I have received certain parts I'm willing to replace some if recommended.
  • Recommendations for peripherals would be appreciated.
  • Additionally any advice on the best resources available to help assist first time builders would beneficial.

Parts:

  • CPU: Intel Core i7-4790K 4.0GHz Quad-Core Processor
  • Motherboard: Asus MAXIMUS VII HERO ATX LGA1150 Motherboard
  • Memory: Corsair Vengeance Pro 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3-1866 Memory
  • Storage: Samsung 850 Pro Series 512GB 2.5" Solid State Drive
  • Video Card: MSI GeForce GTX 980 4GB Twin Frozr Video Card
  • Case: Fractal Design Define R5 (Black) ATX Mid Tower Case
