Looking to build PC for gaming and streaming, help needed

As title says i'm looking to build a pc for gaming and streaming. I've never done this and i'm really new to it so i'm looking for serious help with everything in this build, i have no idea what psu to choose. I'm also looking to build system and use motherboard that can be used in the coming like 10 (or even more lol) years and just upgrade the cpu/gpu and other components. So that's why i have my eyes on this motherboard i selected. I don't really like the price that shows up at the end though, i'd like if it doesn't go over 1000$ but with this motherboard i guess it's not possible? Thanks for any help and advice guys! So budged 1000$ but i could agree if it goes up to 1500$ I guess i can purchase from somewhere like newegg or is it a bad idea to buy from the internet? I will be using it for gaming and streaming I have my own peripherals already so they are not needed I will be using windows 7 ultimate 64 bit BUT since windows 10 will be coming out soon AND with it dx12 i would like if the system i build can run them just fine, i guess only upgrade to the gpu will be needed at that point. Here's the link to what i have come up so far http://pcpartpicker.com/p/LFBtHx

The Cosair CX PSU's are highly reliable. I recommend them above all.

bump! I've updated it to the following configuration http://pcpartpicker.com/p/nBqTVn I'm still not sure about the PSU, I have my eyes on these 2 Seasonic PLATINUM-1000 ATX 1000 Power Supply and EVGA SuperNOVA 1000G2 1000W ATX12V/EPS12V 80Plus Gold Power Supply 120-G2-1000-XR But i don't know what to choose since i need to be very careful with what PSU i use on this motherboard. Any advises? Also i will be using one GPU and only later get a 2nd one when i have the money for it but i want the system to be ready for the 2nd.

You're trying to get an X99 build for 1k? O.o

You don't even need an i7 to stream, QuickyBaby does just fine with an i5. It likely isn't ideal, but it works for him.

The GPU build in the second one needs some help. An X99 build shouldn't have crossfire R9 270xs. No build really should, honestly. A single GPU around a similar price would serve you so much better. The 5820k (the "cheap" x99 i7) isn't the greatest choice for multiple GPU solutions anyways. There aren't as many PCI lanes, for multiple GPUs of such a weak GPU (comparatively speaking for the CPU.)

I'm no computer expert sorry that's why i'm asking here :) Thank you for your advice! I insist on having 6core though instead of 4.

It'd be a "more balanced" rig with twin 970s or a 980 though. Heck, even two 980s. You won't need that much GPU though for streaming
