    Hey bittumadala, the 8600K will definitely help with streaming in general as it has an extra two cores, which will increase the multitasking ability of the CPU. The one I would recommend if you have the money (approx >250) is the 8600K as it will offer the best of all three. The next on my list for streaming, content creation, and general usage would be the 1600X, however, the 1600X will slightly lag behind the 7600K in gaming but it will have far better multitasking ability and streaming will be an easier experience.

    As for a GPU, I would strongly advise you to not go with the 3GB variant, the future of gaming will require more and more vRAM and in the current state I say 3GB is behind. Instead, I would recommend the RX 580 strongly or if due to difficulty to obtain then the 1060 GB variant.

  4. i5-7600K absolutely ruled out, sticken, and banished from contention.... ASAP. (Too many folks complaining of i5 stutter in some games, but, even for those that still have good frame rates, the 4c/4t design is now aging quickly)

    We will need to see the 8600K's delivered performance in gaming (should know in 7 days) before deciding, but, the R5-1600 is for sure a pretty solid value

  5. Looking at the base specs of the i7 8700K, I would be even inclined to recommend (preemptively, as a "wait for it" status) the non-K sibling. A base clock speed of 4.1Ghz+ with a turbo over around 4.5Ghz (I'd imagine they'll be 100Mhz or 200Mhz lower than the K) is *more* than plenty for the tasks you described and it would still last you a good while.

    And do not go for any video card with less than 4GB nowadays. If you're planning on Streaming, having 16GB+ of RAM should also be a must, since the bigger buffer you have, the better behavior you will get from Streaming (buffering).

    That being said, I would also expect AMD to lower the prices for Ryzen once the new i7 launches, so if they lower the Ryzen 7 1800X price to ~USD$300, it will be a bargain for what you want.

    So, after the launch, keep a look on prices!

    Cheers!

    $299 would be a nice psychological barrier breached, as well! :) (Do I hear 1700 for $189, anyone?)
