A little over budget securing above the belt quality parts, although nothing we can't trim down for an excellent gaming rig in it's performance tier.

Here's an AMD option for mostly gaming but can render and may be able to stream.

The monitor has a 75hz refresh rate (+freesync) since with a 580 you won't be pushing 144fps for most AAA games. Go for a 144hz monitor if you don't mind lowering the graphics down a bit though

The case comes with 3 fans so you don't need to spend $ on extra cooling. You can remove the added CPU cooler to save $ if you are fine with using the stock Ryzen cooler. You just won't be able to OC without a drastic increase in thermal temps
