Gaming PC that can handle High Demand graphics and Livestreaming to YT

My PC needs to be able to handle a HIGH demand on the CPU and Memory for games like Call of Duty, and other battle Royale type games. I use StreamlabsOBS and it demands a lot from my CPU and my current laptop just doesn't perform.

I have a parts list in mind but I wanna know if this is the best I can do under $1,500

No need for 32gb of memory 16 will do just fine. Most people don't need a sound card unless your using a 500 buck speaker system.

Fairly small build. Red led fans to replace the other fans with.

I really like most of Brett_5s's build, but I saw some places I would make changes:

Now it really depends upon what games you are playing if the liquid cooled Vega 64 will perform better or worse than the 2070. They tend to trade blows. At the same price point ($499) I would choose team Red. If there was a difference in price, I would go with the cheaper option. In addition, the liquid cooled version will be quieter than a standard GPU.

No matter what you need a multi-core CPU to handle the streaming part. While speed is important, core count actually matters a little more.

Noise will be important to you if you are streaming with a mic. Don't want a loud system to be overheard. Every component I picked was with that in mind.

Hi, have you monitored the memory utilisation on your laptop? 32gb still appears high at the moment.

Also, as a note most if not all modern day boards have one 1000mbit/s ethernet socket, do you need a second for any reason?

In addition, mid/high end motherboards have ok sound chips, is there a reason you added a sound card?

Also, what monitor resolution do you aim to game at, and what graphic settings and FPS do you want to target?

Finally, do you need any additional peripherals, or have aesthetic requirements in mind, and are you looking to overclock or run stock speeds (at least for short term)?

Questions are to help build a rounded rig.

No I don't need a second one, So I can get rid of that. I did not know they have gotten better on the boards themselves.

As for monitor. I am still working on that but I would like to aim for the best. But money will be tight so I am just focusing on the tower for now.

I have never overclocked anything ever because I was told if done wrong it can destroy your computer... So ya...

I don't mind the questions otherwise I wouldn't have put this thing together to be criticized.

Similar theme to the upvoted builds above, though added a traditionally go to motherboard for X series ryzen CPUs based on build quality, performance and integrated higher end sound chip. If you are not overclocking the stock cooler is very decent so no need to invest for an aftermarket cooler. But a flexibility you have in the future. The 2700x packs a punch for multitasking (e.g. gaming and simultaneous streaming) due to 8 cores and 16 threads) if you are venturing down 1080p 144hz monitor route then you'll have a ~10% FPS deficit Vs latest intel CPUs but this is offset by very little performance hit streaming, unless you go for the i9 9900k but then this is upwards of $250 more. The rtx 2070 is good for decent fps at 1440p and then the CPU becomes less of a bottle neck, so AMD and Intel CPU performance evens out. If you are to go for a monitor in future take a look at the Nvidia freesync monitor support list, allows use of variable refresh rates to provide smooth game play without paying for g-sync tax. Or you could look for a nice monitor and check users experience with Nvidia cards. Freesync support was only released in Nvidia drivers last week. Anyhow the build is below, any questions happy to help out.

Thank you all for the feedback.

So many to choose from. This is going to be harder than I thought...
