If you're willing to wait then i'd suggest the r7 4700 (or x if you aren't into OC). That being said I have a r7 1700 and its only at 3.7ghz and it streams no issue at all. That's with cpu encoding as well so if you get/got a 20xx or 30xx card and use hardware encoding I can't imagine even a r5 1600 (aka 6 core) would have an issue. The main reason streaming is hard is when the cpu has to encode so when that's mostly or completely removed most cpus can stream. Linus was using a i5 4 core with a 2080ti in his VR(and streaming) rig for a long time because of that reason.
