This would be good build to consider. Chose a 6-core CPU since you'll be streaming and recording. The 1060 will easily handle most games on high settings 60+ FPS. I have 8GB of ram but in the future, you may want to consider 16GB. In which case, you can just slap in at any point. I couldn't fit an SSD into the budget with the Ryzen 5 and 1060 but I'm sure the HDD will be bearable until you can get an SSD.

With that price point of the 1060 6gb, I would've just gotten the FE card from the NVIDIA website itself for the same price.

Agreed, However, it’s OOS. :/

There are still cheap options, though. Take this 1060 3g for example.

https://www.staples.com/geforce-gtx1060-3gb-ddr5/product_2741079

While it does have 3g less vRAM, it’s 200 dollars cheaper. Worth it, in my opinion.

I’ve used that 200$ to get you a CPU with 2 extra cores and 4 extra threads for your recording/video editing/streaming, an SSD as a boot drive and for your steam library, and 8g extra RAM. PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant
