Looking for a solid PC Build for Gaming/Streaming and General Business Functions - Budget $1100

Hello,
I am looking for advice on what I would need for a new office setup that would be solid for gaming, streaming, and general day to day work functions for side businesses.  I am not the best with technology pertaining to building a custom PC so I want to know what I would need to be successful with about a $1100 budget give or take. If this $1100 budget can include other needs/extras such as a decent monitor, cam, etc. that would be great too. 
- Looking to stream games online including faster paced FPS games(COD, Overwatch, etc.)
- Basic business functions for work and day-to-day use
- Recommended extras
Any advice or insights would be greatly appreciated. 
Thanks!!

    Including other items like a monitor, I'd say "under $900" is probably the target for the computer itself. I put this build together:

    This will be a good for 1080p gaming and you'll be able to hit higher framerates if you tweak your graphics settings right.. The Ryzen 5 3600 will be a great option for streaming with 6 cores/12 threads and would pair well with future GPU upgrades. 

    There are some areas where you can save some cost like going with a cheaper motherboard and power supply, but overall I think this would be a good starting point. 

    One thing I would point out is that the upcoming Ryzen 3 3300X will also be a great value processor once it hits shelves, and bumping down to that and upgrading your GPU to the next tier would probably be my ideal for the budget you have.
