Well, you have onboard ethernet and if you're gonna be streaming you might want to go the ethernet cable route instead of Wifi.

If you're prefer WiFi you don't NEED the adapter, you can always buy one of those USB WiFi adapters. I've used them for years. I currently use one that connects at 75mbps to my 300mbps router. Keep in mine the adapter is rated at 300mbps so I'm receiving 25% of my maximum. Then consider ISP's only guarantee something like 75% anyway, I'm getting more like 33%. Still a huge loss.

Whats your budget? Your build is quite unbalanced at the moment.

I'd just take his current budget and add $200 if it helps. :)

Ok right now mi budget is 1500 including monitor, keyboard and mouse. I can add another 200 hundred just in case what do you recommend?

Something like this would be more balanced. Your monitor is already pretty decent for what its worth. I wouldnt change that. Otherwise another option for the gpu would be a GTX 1060 6Gb which does cost a bit more and slightly edges out the RX 480.

I'd at least get a GTX 1060 6GB (graphics card).

An i5-6600k is a good alternative for the price. If you're real serious about twitch, then the i7 won't constrain your system.

Dropping $50 more for the monitor is recommended, given your budget. I'd spend another $20 on a much better power supply. I wouldn't feel comfortable overclocking stuff with that EVGA 500W.
