Title says it all I guess. Recently my gaming laptop finally gave out (he lived a good life).

I'm wanting to get back into streaming and gaming my budget doesn't allow for a whole lot but if you could help me with a pc that will be able to smoothly run games like halo and war zone while being able to stream to twitch via OBS.
Thanks for any help my friends!

Extra cores on the processor to help stream the games.
Budget platform, to squeeze the best GPU you can afford
Could change if you could be more specific at what resolution and refresh rate you are targeting (IE what monitor are you using)

Where @Why_Me is well over budget, it does address concerns such as monitor. You might even have to consider keyboard and mouse.

My own opinion would be to tough it out, wait a couple of weeks, and save some money. Imminent releases are going to make everything "this" gen far cheaper, soon.

I have a 60hz monitor and still have my old mouse and keyboard.
I like this build for what I’m doing it should work I eventually will save to repair my laptop and that will carry the streaming load and allow me to just game on what you have sent.

Find yourself a case to your liking. Look for a case with two front intake fans and a front mesh panel.

Intel is mostly better in gaming and still plenty of cores for streaming...
