Help with first gaming/streaming build!

Budget (including currency): 800-1000 (USD), it’s okay if it’s a little over

Country: USA

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Mainly League of Legends and CSGO, also want to stream while playing these games using OBS. Get over 144 FPS while streaming since using 144Hz monitor 

Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc): I have a 144Hz monitor. I would also like to build around Ryzen 5

The GPU should be enough for entry level games like League, CSGO, Roblox, etc. Because it has a 1800 Mhz boost clock and 6GB of DDR6, it should be enough for streaming and gaming at the same time.

I have this build in mine and was wondering if the parts are compatible, and where I can shave off some money to save:

This is what I've changed:

-Pick the R5 3600 non X to save a few bucks.

-Don't buy Windows 10 full price, you can find license key really cheap on Ebay.

-I've changed your RAM for a kit of 3600MHz which is the sweet spot for Zen 2.

-I've replace the PSU for a semi modular unit, you'll thank me later. ;)

-I've upgraded the 1660 SUPER for an RTX 2060.

-I've upgraded to storage to 1TB.

Don't waste money on the Tomahawk when the MUCH better X570 boards are marginally more.

Also, the 5600 XT performs like a 2060 and costs much less.

Lastly, ditch the GD power supply and get an actually good unit, not a known lemon

I was wondering why you chose x470 for the motherboard and not B450?

Why is semi-modular good in this case? And why do you recommend the GTX 2060?

Would the b450 MoBo be a better option if it were in stock or would you go for x470/x570 instead

right now, nothing is in stock except for a few crappy gigabyte B450 boards, so that's the only option you have.
