Hi -- I am putting together a build to build with my 12 y.o. son for @ $700. He's planning to stream games (e.g., Fortnite) with friends.

Here is what I put together so far: advice/suggestions, especially on the MOBO, CPU, GPU and case would be especially appreciated:

Thanks, Jeremy. This will be my second build, so I'm a little nervous moving from an ATX mobo to a micro ATX. But that's probably my inexperience getting the better of me...

If you can squeeze in another 150, i would recomend this, you can get a lot more for 850 than this, but um thinking since hes a kid he likes rgb, ao thats the main point in this build i combined. performance + looks
