1.) Looking for a build that can stream games well, also plan on having a dual monitor setup. 2.) prefer higher end graphic card 970 or AMD counterpart 3.) prefer i5 6600k and overclocking ability...but I'm not sure if this is a good streaming cpu 4.) under 1200 USD closer to a 1000 prefered 5.) no monitors or keyboard etc necessary.

Any help or thoughts appreciated! Thanks

i think the i5 will work just fine, altough more cores are better for streaming but 4 high clocked ones will work too, imo

This...actually looks really good! Good job. Only thing I would change, cause you left the budget for it, is the case to an H440 for aesthetics purposes but that's just me.

thanks! :) Yeah that is always a bit hard cause everyone likes other cases.. the h440 is a really great case too

Change to a XFX/MSI/SAPPHIRE gpu, and the 650w g2 will suffice. All is good apart from that.

Thanks! I don't plan on streaming any high end games, mostly league and some csgo, so i think the I5 should work fine
