I am new to this and have done my research and this seems to me like a very viable build but I want reviews from “experts” and tell me what should be changed if anything and my goals are to game hopefully at high settings and possibly stream eventually. I will include a link with the build info.http://
 
I agree with vapour, don't go with the 7700k. Go for the 8th gen CPUs as they cost the same and deliver more cores. For just gaming, the 8600k is a really good value. I also added a SSD. I would not build a system these days without a SSD. It wont make your fps better in games, but having Windows on a SSD will make the entire PC experience much better. Boot and load times will drastically speed up and the system will feel more responsive.

I would go with this:

While Intel has a slight edge in gaming performance, AMD's CPUs are within 5-10%. If you are playing at 1440p or 4k, then they are all just about the same. But the AMD CPUs have more threads than Intel and that will help with any type of work station task. Here is a build that is $100 less than the Intel, and if you are playing at 1440p resolution (which you should with a 1070ti), it will get the same fps as the Intel system.

That is a good sale. Wish I needed a GPU.
