Looking for Value PC to Game & Broadcast From

As of today, I've been using an Alienware Alpha to game on (titles like Overwatch, Fortnite, Fallout 76 barely) and at the same time broadcast. While it works, it doesn't work particularly well at both (and sometimes gaming exclusively).

What I'm looking to do is build my first PC (I'm scared) that can do both, yet still aim for good value. The finer details:

  • Based in Canada
  • Need everything except monitor, mouse, keyboard (wouldn't mind a monitor that had multiple HDMI input though)
  • Looking to broadcast to Twitch in 720p as I'm just a scrub & don't have designs on being more than that for now.
  • Budget wise I'd love "best bang for buck" & near to $1000... but understand my ask may not be possible without more money. $1500 is likely my max.

Don’t be scared. I just built my first pc, and it was a lot easier than I thought it was going to be. You got this :D
