Hello, so I am in the middle of trying to decide what type of cpu, mobo, and mid tower case to buy. My intent is to get medium-high components for gaming.
Things that I do? -I play Games like Guild Wars 2, League of Legends, and Smite. - I might be doing video editing once in a while, but very rarely. - I will be doing school work. - I might be streaming games like the one's that I previously mentioned.
For CPU's, I found the i5-4690k and the amd fx 6300 which both appear to be good, but I can't decide which is the better choice? I also need a compatible MOBO for the CPU and a mid tower case that will work for college dorms.
My total budget won't allow me to exceed past $400 for the CPU/Mobo/Mid Tower Case together.
I appreciate your time and all the help, open to all opinions. Thanks!

That's two of what I have seen that appear to be good, but the price is too high.
