I need some input on a rig I'm building, so far I've made a list on pcpartpicker which I have linked below.

https://pcpartpicker.com/list/2XjVBZ

My absolute max price for the build is a round 1200 USD and I'd prefer to have an AMD cpu in the rig. However I'm open to any build suggestions that you guys can give me. This is my first time building a pc so I would greatly appreciate any pointers or tips. Another thing I'd like to mention is that I plan on using this as a streaming rig to stream.

Everything looks pretty good, except your board doesn't have onboard wifi I believe. You would either need a wifi adapter of some sort in order to access internet. They cost around $10-$15.

Everything looks great except for the motherboard and WiFi. This ASRock looks like it don’t have any onboard WiFi so you would need to get either a pcie WiFi card or usb to use WiFi with this. Second the Intel 660p 1TB in $20 cheaper and has better read and right speeds. Plus your get nvme m.2 features so it just mounts directly to the motherboard with no cables

I've got a spare usb wifi adapter laying around so I've got the wifi covered. Thank you for the ssd suggestion too, I would much prefer less cables in my case.

Thank you for pointing that out, I wasn't sure if it had wifi capabilities or not.
