Which build is more suited for recording and streaming intensive games at high graphics settings?

The i7 build, purely because of the i7. Although I'm not sure if you can stream games with AMD cards, unless they have their own streaming software. I'm only aware of Shadowplay for nVidia cards atm.

If you are going to use shadowplay, I'd recommend getting this MSI 970

xplit is a good streming program

Ah, right. In that case, the 290 should do equally as well as the 970 in some cases, but will be able to play any game at 1080p easily.

That's why I said that the 290 will do fine.

Well since your in the UK the 970 is out, but i think the i7 is a good investment due to the hyperthreading. It allows more headroom for the CPU while your gaming. You can stream and game. It will also render video well if you ever decide to start making edited videos instead of live streams.
