So this PC will be used mainly for gaming (LOL, CS:GO, etc.) and streaming. From what i have talked to others and have researched myself i would like an opinion on what i can improve, save, or need to add to this build. Thanks for anyone who helps out i really appreciate it.

The first thing you need to change is the NEX G1 PSU which is not a good choice.

Get a cheaper case and go with the 6600k and a cooler.
