I need help building a streaming/gaming PC

Hello! I am brand new to building computers and did a little bit of research on what I would need to stream and game on the same pc. Was wondering if this build was suitable. I also would love input on hardrives vs ssd. I also know nothing about computer coolant and which ones work the best. Thank you for your time!  https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder.aspx?load=22fa987e-cae7-444f-bd9d-d363b1b1e4ed

    Hello @Reid

    The build looks great!  SSD is pretty much the standard for any PC Build and HDDs are mainly used as secondary storage as it is great price for the amount of storage gained.  You will need a CPU Cooler for your processor as your current processor does not come with one.  I recommend the Cooler Master Hyper 212.  Air cooling and using water cooling have their plus and minuses but air coolers are best price to performance and the Hyper 212 is a great go to for CPU Cooling.   

    What resolution are you looking to play at and what kind of games?

    Those games aren't super demanding and your build is more than enough to handle those and streaming for sure!
