Alright i put together a list for a stream build. Im going to be playing on 144hz 1080p and trying to stream at 720p at 60fps. (i heard its impossible to stream at 1080p without a stream pc).Im going to play the new AAA titles in max, as well as playing games like overwatch on low (trying to get 300FPS) while streaming. Im planning on ordering them part by part when they go on sale.

The reason i got a water cooler is because i hate the look of the air coolers. i also have a monitor/mouse/keyboard already, so no need to rebuy. Any suggestions to make it a bit cheaper/better are appreciated

I change the cooler to the 280mm version. Generally water coolers (AIOs) aren't worth buying over an air cooler if they are under 240mm

Changed HDD. The WD Black is overpriced. The WD Blue has a better value

Changed PSU. The G2 is better than the GQ

Changed the OS. You don't need Windows 10 Pro.

Also, this PC can EASILY do 1080p 60fps while streaming

is the g2 better than the gq enough that its really worth it? how much better is it over the gq?

Its fully modular and slightly better. May not be worth it for some people
