Why not go for the more recent Skylake build? They cost about the same and you benefit more from it. To answer your question, you should be fine for the most part. Audio editing is a cake walk unless you are planning on recording real instruments and have accuracy monitoring the sound(not needed for production). Streaming is fine but it is CPU intensive so you should probably get the more recent architecture to be on the safe side(6700k).

Can I stream from this computer, how good will viedo and audio editing be. Are there any bottlenecks. And most importantly will it all fit? Just curious the  compatibility check said it would. Just wanted to hear it from some people.

I thought that too. The 6700k isn't compatible, whats a skylake build I keep hearing about that.

This list could use some updates. The i7 6700k is selling for $320 on Amazon and Newegg right now to my knowledge, please get that, and the Asus Z170-A is $150. And just make sure to get DDR4, which is about the same price.

you´ll need a z170 board for that. not a z97. skylake = 1151 socket. haswell 1150 socket.

The only thing i would change to your build is to add an ssd , they make a world of a difference in almost every task. It will speed up every task that isn't gaming 

It will only speed up loading times, not the actual performance of the system :)

skylake is the name of new intel cpu architecture and the cpu number always starts with 6 if it is skylake

 

your cpu is a older architecture named broadwell with a cpu # that starts with 4

I would argue that loading times is an important factor of a system. SSD also speeds up saving large documents or videos or making copies of files and encrypting and decrypting, etc. Those minutes/seconds saved add up.

Yes, it would be more precise that it speeds up everything involving reading from or writing to the hard drive. How much of an impact it has overall will depend mostly on what the system is used for and how it is used (for example, where you install the most used programs, etc).

I think that the 1080 is an overkill since you are stuck at 1080p, you should consider a newer cpu and generally ddr4 support since you are spending that kind of cash, get an ssd for your boot drive ( YOU WILL LOVE IT). And besides gaming you could do everything really, I mean nasa send a rocket to the moon using something with much less power than your kitchen oven might be having today.
