Budget Full Build for 1080p Gaming, Streaming, & Video Editing/Rendering

Otfwavy

I'm looking to keep it around $1,000. This is the build I came up with, like bare minimum it seems to me http://pcpartpicker.com/p/cptBXL

The games I'm looking to play aren't overly intense: Fallout 4, GTA V, World of Warcraft, Minecraft, Skyrim, Payday, CS:GO, Diablo 3, LoL, like I said, nothing overly intensive.

I would just like to be able to play the games at Ultra settings, and stream at Ultra or with a couple settings turned down to High.

Only things I'd like is 4GB of VRAM, other than that I'm open to anything.

Thanks for all your help guys!

I'd take a look at this: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/jK6FRB

If you need to save some money, change the cooler to an Hyper 212 EVO. The only reason for the aio is so you can overclock

I chose the beefy power supply for crossfire when you get another 200$ :)

I'd personally get this Xeon over an i5, because the hyperthreading will help with x264 encoding.

Shot through the heart and you're to blame, 30fps and i'll pirate your game - Bon Jovi

Take me down to the console city where the games are blurry and the frames are thirty - Guns N' Roses

Arguing with religious people is like explaining to your mother that online games can't be paused...
