Will be perfect for high refresh 1080p.

Very nice build choices overall. You could consider going Nvidia and using their NVENC encoder for streaming. However, the 5700 will offer you more fps for the price and a 3700X will be very capable of streaming.

If you did want to use NVENC, a 2070 super and 3600 would probably be best. This would give you better GPU performance, at the expense of CPU multicore performance.

Do you have an old phone lying around that could be used?

 

Looks like a great build otherwise, good job

 

Edit: Hyper 212 is a cheap cooler that looks good and will decrease noise quite a lot. Big improvement over the stock cooler, although the 3700x ships with a pretty good one anyway

Try downloading Droidcam or IP webcam onto it. I'm not sure which one works with IOS, or if the phone will be new enough
