Hello my name is Todd

A Tower is all I need no extras like screen or mouse or keyboard.

I am located in Canada

The use will be for Gaming and streaming Note: (I am a competitive gamer) so I be using a 1080p 144z monitor but I also play graphic demanding games mainly for streams.

Single tower build preferred.

Windows 10 I'll need.

Budget is 4k but would be looking to make that smaller if possible. I care about performance not for exterior looks or rgb at all.

If any extra info is required let me know.

You would get better performance using a dedicated PC for streaming with a capture card.

Gaming PC.

So could I kind of mix and match could I do the first PC for the gaming PC then do the cheap one for streaming

Yes, but you can also use the capture card within the gaming PC (CPU does the encoding, whilst the GPU does the game work)

From this video you don't even need a capture card to stream from the 2nd PC.

I stream and game from same PC and this is my exact build. This was also my first ever PC build. It works amazing and im still figuring PC stuff out but I love it. It can play in high settings and stream in 1080p but I play mostly low to medium settings because I am not a graphics crazy person. I want performance and this does it for me.

Hope the link works.
