This is going to be my first ever PC build and I need some help in choosing the components.

The tower I have: Fractal Core 1500. It's a microATX tower

Budget: $600, not including monitor.

I want this PC to be focused on gaming, but if I could record or stream on it (a little ambitious for $600 I know) that would be nice too.

Thanks!

If your going to record you need a seperate drive to record to. Game on the SSD record to the other drive.

Just barely, but it's not a bad list. If you have a little extra I'd put it into a power supply such as a CX550M, semi-modular and a bit more wattage.
