So this is my first ever build, so I have zero idea what I'm doing. Several hours of research and I'm still confused, so I thought I'd come ask on here!
I want to game and have the potential to stream. Games ranging from Minecraft to AAA, at a decent fps would be great. No need to overclock and have a super computer, just something that can run games well. Thank you!

I made a few changes to the build you listed above with my recommendations, but I have a few questions for you about this build. I might have some more recommendations when I learn a bit more about what you have in mind for this build.
What will you be using your build to do? What kind of monitor are you pairing with this build, and lastly, what's your budget?
I'll be using it to game and stream. I have my own monitor (It's nothing special just a regular monitor) and I would really like to stay below $1000, but I know that's very hard. I think my max would have to be $1,400
I did make a small change to my suggestion to get it under $1400. However, this is with a $360 GPU.
You can reduce the cost of your GPU, however, there is a pretty fair correlation of $$ to FPS when spent on your GPU.
That being said, if your monitor is a 1080p 60hz monitor, having more frames won't do anything as your monitor is locked to 60hz/FPS.
So, if 1080p 60hz is your goal you could go with a cheaper GPU!
Let me know if you have questions! I'd be happy to help.
