The gpu is really good if you wanna play modern games on ultra settings but the cpu is lacking if you seriousy wanna play games and stream at the same time, i'd recommend getting the fx 6300 since almost everything about it, the fx 6300 has much more cores, 6 to be exact, and since most games are now multi-threaded, dual core pentiums won't prove much in gaming these days you'll need a better cpu like the fx 6300 recommended above..

I recommend this build using the fx 6300 and still around 600$; PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant

This build would be way better for the money, although it's 27$ more than you want to pay it's worth it, games will run much better and smoother when having this setup. Plus, the fx 6300 is commonly used with the 270x and most people love that setup since it's common for a budget build and most people are on budget builds. You'll have a blast with the pc i recommended.

Hope you build a nice gaming pc! Cheerio!
