1st build for gaming and streaming

I would use this for gaming and streaming. Wifi is needed, and I'd prefer it to be integrated into the mobo. I would not like to go over $600. This is my first build so I'm open to suggestions. Thanks in advance.

You should go for a Ryzen 5 1400 instead to get those 4 extra threads, which will help a lot with streaming. Additionally, Ryzen is much faster with DDR4 3000 then DDR4 2666, so change that as well.

Thanks! its a little more than I'd like to spend. I might change the hybrid drive for a 7200 RPM. Is a hybrid drive worth getting instead of a standard HDD?

Not really, you are at most getting a 10-50 mbps boost, so you probably won't notice the difference. If you want speed, you should probably just go for a full 240gb SSD.

Ok I'll probably use what ImperiousBattlestar has put together
