I Need Help With Picking Out Parts (Gaming/YouTubing PC)

I am trying to build a $1000-$1100 gaming pc that can also edit videos and stream. I have created a parts list on pcpartpicker.com, but i am not sure if it is good enough for what I want to do. I want to play most games at 1080p ultra (GTA V, Skyrim Special Edition, Battlefield 1, etc), and might play some more casual titles at 4K with downsampling to 1080p with Ultra Detail (League of Legends, Dota 2, Overwatch). My parts list consists of an Intel Core i5-7600K, Cooler MasterHyper 212 EVO, Asus Strix Z270-E, G.Skill Ripjaws V 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4-3000, EVGA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB, Transcend MTS800 128GB M.2 SSD (cheapest SSD listed), Seagate Barracuda 1TB 7200rpm HDD, Fractal Design Define S w/ Window, and an EVGA BQ 500W Semi-Modular 80+ Bronze certified PSU. I think that this is a good $1000 computer to get me started, but I was wondering if i should increase my budget by $250 and get an i7 and a gtx 1070. The 7700K is an additional $100 and a gtx 1070 is another $150. Any feedback would be great.

    This build has a better bang for your buck. No overclocking, but with 8 threads and a boost speed of 4.2GHz it's plenty powerful for streaming and gaming. The R9 Fury is a great deal at less than $300 but does require more power so I changed out the BQ power supply for a higher quality GQ.

    Also, if you want to upgrade from the Intel stock cooler I'd recommend the M9i.

    great build. the r9 fury is a bit older, but it keeps up with the 1070 in many titles. and the i7 is probably a better choice for streaming. thanks
