Just going to preface this with: I'm new to the PC gaming world. So please be gentle. The PC I'm currently using was built by my late father and gifted to me by my mother. I recall him saying that he built this thing for gaming but I've found out that isn't really the case. Basic games, Minecraft, Subnautica, oddly enough even Destiny, are playable. The graphics card is the basic motherboard card. Found out quickly that Red Dead Redemption 2 isn't playable. I'd like to game AND stream. I meet, and exceed, the minimum requirements for streaming, except the graphics card. So I'll try and list what's in it as best I can.

Gigabyte H170-Gaming 3 motherboard
i7 processor
64gb RAM
Corsair CX750m power supply

Not sure what other information is needed but I'll try and supply it if necessary. I'm curious what card would work best for this setup and my wallet to allow me to stream and game at the same time. I was looking at the AMD Radeon RX 580 GTS. I'm not trying to get fancy and go 4k. I just want my friends to be able to see games they can't, or won't, play and have fun. Opinions? Suggestions? Constructive criticism to my lack of knowledge about computers? Lol.

Lol. Thanks. And I suck this stuff. It's never been a real interest of mine until I discovered streaming AND gaming isn't possible with this thing. But uh...250 to 300 max budget-wise. Nothing fancy or over the top. Just as long as it works. Full CPU info beloooow.

Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-6700k CPU @4.00GHz 4.00 GHz

The GAMING X series of MSI is a great series. The Twin Frozr Fan on them are amazing. It's quiet and cool.
Thank you for the recommendation, friend. I ended up getting the 1660 Super after watching the video and finding the funds. I should get it a little later this week. :D
