Need professional help with choosing right components for a PC build.

I trying to build a PC for a budget of £650-£700. I was thinking about Ryzen 5 1600 with combination with gtx 1060 3GB or 1050ti, 16GB(4x4GB) 2400MHz Ram. PC is meant for gaming, content creating ( streaming, video creating ) but thanks to your forum I understood that I need to make some changes. What would make a great balanced Gaming PC for this budget?

  1. Do you have any hardware at all to start with?
    Do you have an empty case that supports ATX?
    You got any good fans? Coolers? Anything at all?

  3. With this build you can upgrade both the CPU and GPU when you've got the money and sell the old ones.
