Was planning on doing some gaming and streaming with this build and I am wondering if this will be ample enough to do so? any feedback is appreciated


I have already purchased the GPU For streaming I will be using a laptop with an Elgato capture card

I think you might be limiting yourself a bit with a 75Hz refresh rate monitor; in many games this combo should manage significantly higher fps. I assume the AIO is for looks since you don't need large cooling capacity for a 2600 (although that price isn't bad).

ok would recommend a 100hz 144hz, 180hz, or 240hz monitor instead? also I remember watching a Linus Tech Tips video where they talked about freesync monitors that are G-Sync compatible do you know if the 1070 can use this feature?

Nvidia 10 series and the rtx series support free sync.

NVidia cards never used to do freesync but with recent drivers, they can do freesync (I think it has to be freesync over DisplayPort, not sure). A 144Hz monitor with freesync would probably be a good choice.
