i5-9600k

I was wondering is the i5-9600k a viable choice for gaming and some light streaming once or twice a month, I want a cpu that is as future proof as possible and i had a bad experience with AMD once so i really prefer working with Intel CPUs, is there any other intel cpu that i could use in place of the i5-9600k and get better performance, I plan on overclocking and i want a cpu that will last me the next 5-10 years.

There is nothing called "future proof" in terms of computer hardware. Everything is out dated within a year or 2 and starts to show aging compared to new stuff rather quickly. That said, the i5 9600k is a 6 core part and will be great for gaming, but could potentially be a bottleneck when it comes to streaming some games that are CPU intensive such as Rainbow Six Siege etc. Based on your use case, you would be better off getting an i7 8700k to have the 6 cores, 12 threads to allow maximum performance.
