In that case you are being Bottlenecked but a Ryzen won't change that too much. If you either you spend the money on a 4k or 1440p display (which I'd do) or you get a new Intel because they'll still be king for 1080p.

Sorry, I don't have my crystal ball with me. 

But yes, for video editing and streaming chose the 2700(X)

If you choose ryzen, make sure to get a great cipset in your motherboard. Is it ITX, micro atx, atx or what? I always recommend asus gaming...
