  3. For gaming and streaming, the 8700k will chew up the Ryzen.

  4. OBS can use those extra cores.

  5. I'll only say this once. Keep the off-topic sniping out of this or there will be some sanctions handed out. Those of you who had posts 'disappear' know who you are.

    tbh i like the build just not the case or monitor

  7. There is not really much difference between the monitor listed above and the one you specified in your build except for the contrast ratio. You can fall back to the one in your build if you want.
    Same with the case. This one is pretty good for its price point and has good air flow. Pretty similar to the Corsair you have listed, except for the looks.

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

    As for the difference in monitor? Not nil; it's FreeSync versus none of it. It's useful when AMD makes some good GPUs at the 1070 price range.
    As for the case, may I suggest this: https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B074DQVB97/?tag=pcp0f-21
