Hello folks,
My 4770k config is getting a bit outdated, it still gets the job done mostly but I also want to stream and I have some performance issues while streaming recent games. Im basically looking for a full platform change, the only thing i'll carry over is my GPU. Recommend me a good Ryzen 3700x setup please, or surprise me with a comparable intel build, though i believe AMD is the better choice now for gaming + streaming.

Approximate Purchase Date: This month, maybe next

Budget Range: ~1000-1400€ after shipping,

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, streaming, video editing

Are you buying a monitor: No

Parts to Upgrade: Everything except my GPU which is a GTX1070

Do you need to buy OS: NO

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: mindfactory.de, csl-computer.com

Location: Germany, Baden-Württemberg

Parts Preferences: Looking for a setup centered around the Ryzen 3700x

Your Monitor Resolution: FullHD, 144Hz

Note: all parts are from MindFactory.

Few words:

Put in the CPU requested. Since CPU cooler is included with CPU, didn't add aftermarket CPU cooler. MoBo is at the mid-range, not costing the fortune nor costing peanuts. For RAM, put in 32GB and RGB for some eyecandy. While gaming build does fine with 16GB, 32GB can help out with streaming. OS drive is 970 Evo Plus M.2 NVMe SSD which gives fastest read/write speeds. If you need more storage, add any storage drive of your choosing to build. GPU is in there as placeholder. Same goes with the PC case, since choosing PC case is personal choice and pick any you like. And lastly, put in great quality PSU from Seasonic. PRIME series is the flagship line of PSUs from Seasonic and it's the only PSU series in the world that comes with 12 years of warranty. Also, 650W of max output is more than enough for your build, even if you OC CPU and/or GPU.
(All 3 of my PCs: Skylake, Haswell and AMD are also powered by Seasonic. Full specs with pics in my sig.)

You can take this build as a guideline. Swap parts out as you see fit.

No need to spend anything more than that. Save the extra amount left add more to it and swap out that GTX1070 next year for a better card.
