Beginner Streaming PC wanted!

Hi everyone, really new to this and I'm planning on building my first PC.

Im interested in streaming games like Old School Runescape and to do schoolwork (if I have time haha)

im interested in a dual monitor set up, with a keyboard and a mouse. Not sure if a Mic would be better than a headset for streaming.

Budget: Looking at 600-800 alone for PC 400-600 for monitors, mice, keyboard, mic/headset Use (Gaming, Rendering, etc): Light gaming for now, homework, streaming Operating System required: Would need windows If spending more for something with more value or would be 10x better within reason I can justify. *Prices are in Canadian It would need absolutely everything because I don't have left over parts/used ones.

Thanks in advance everyone.

I appreciate all questions and feedback.

Cheers

This is the cheapest I would go. Personally I wouldn't use anything below an i5 and 750 ti for streaming but

This would have x1 8GB RAM and have room to add another for 16GB when you can. The Xeon is basically an i7 to help with streaming.

this is overkill for runescape, but i thought you might play other games. just add your own keyboard, mouse, speakers, and mic/headset

Warning dumb questions ahead.

Soundcard... do I need one? Wireless network: do any of these have it? Or do I need to add that in as well?

Also, will be interested in trying out other games in the future, good assumption @trickkynickk Loving the variety guys!

Motherboards have their own integrated sound chip and almost none come with wifi. You will need to add a USB or PCI-E x1 wifi device.
