VERY FIRST PC BUILD- BUILDING to upgrade in the next year

I play dota2 at a higher level and would like to be able to stream and play without any issues.
Also have been getting into FPS shooters now that I am finally upgrading from my toaster.
I would like to be able to play the new call of duty at high resolution and performance.
I have a 1000 budget give or take. would like to try to get as close as possible. 
Ill be watching movies, gaming, streaming editing on this pc.
i actually have a case at the moment my friend gave me that im considering using to save money towards the other more crucial parts in pc building. 
I also got a powersupply already that i cant think of the wattages off the top of my head but its atleast 500W  i believe.
I hope i can get some insight on my possible routes.

    So the fact that you have a case that you can build in and as long as that power supply is 500w or more than this build should should do everything you need.  Now I didn't include a capture card in the build so if you need a capture card for your streaming then drop the Ryzen 7 3700x down to a ryzen 5 3600x and that should more or less cover the capture card difference.  Other than that though got a 2060 super in here because the encoder built into Nvidia cards is fantastic for streaming.  But considering that you could probably dump most of the encoding onto the Ryzen 7 cpu and be fine you could for only like 20-30 bucks more get a 5700xt from AMD and that card will outperform a 2060 super in most cases when it comes to FPS.  But the 2060 super would be able to help with the encoding for streaming.  Personally I would go with the AMD GPU here for the performance since the cpu can handle it, but if you need to get your capture card in this budget then leave it as is and make the cpu swap I suggested.  Either way enjoy building and streaming.
