Need help constructing a console streaming PC

Hey everyone, I've been given the task of constructing a console stream dedicated pc for someone. I'm still relatively new to all this , they're looking to stream their Switch and Xbox through an elgato. I'd really appreciate some help constructing a build that isn't crazy expensive but also runs fairly efficient. I appreciate any and all help , thank you all so much!

    You're just building the system to capture with the El Gato card from the consoles? You just want to build a basic gaming desktop with a solid CPU, GPU and a decent amount of RAM, 16GB. You don't need anything crazy. I'd probably go with a Ryzen 5 3600, its' a $160 and it'll do a good job.   El Gato does support GPU renderings, so I'd pair with a basic GPU. GTX 1660, perhaps a 1660 Super would pair well with the Ryzen 5 3600.
