Currently, what is the Best budget CPU for Gaming and streaming. I want one that can do both. Responses will be much appreciated. I'm forming the build of my pc around the CPU and graphics card (using GTX 1060) I'm not willing to spend any more than $150

Well that depends on what you plan to spend. In most cases AMD offers better core/$ value and if you plan to game and stream having additional cores will give you room to do both.

If you go with the generation before, you can get a Ryzen 7 2700 for $149:

The Ryzen 5 2600 is $114:

The 2700 would be a better option with 2 more cores to offload processes to.

If you're gonna stream and game at the same time get a ryzen 7 2700 the main reason is that it has 8 cores and for multitasking more cores = better performance but still ryzen 5 3500x has better single core performance
