If you really have to save, I suppose you could go down to 8gigs of ram and add more later, but I wouldn't... All in all you got a very balanced build. I like it.

I really like your PC config. But I am not sure about Ryzen 7 1700, that 1700 has less IPC speed than new 2600. Correct me if I'm wrong.  So very nice PC, I think my brother like this.

The main difference here is that the Ryzen 7 has 8 cores and 16 threads. These days that's enough to game and stream from the same computer without having either suffer in quality. I could be wrong, but that's what I was able to abstract from my research. The 2600 is definitely faster, and will probably have better gaming performance, but the 1700 will have better streams without affecting the game as much.

the 1700 does abit worse in games but the extra cores will help with streaming.

Hmmm,  I should tell him wait for new Ryzen 5 3600(G?). Any suggest on 3600?

The Ryzen 5 3600G should be released in July at $199 MSRP (Could be higher). That is with higher clock speeds and 18 threads so it could end up being a much better deal. 

Considering that July is only 4 months away, I'd say wait. Especially if you're goal is to stream and game with decent performance and viewer experience. 

I don't build PC's for a living or hobby though, so take that with a grain of salt or even follow someone else if they say otherwise.
