The 5600xt is an excellent card for gaming on ultra at 1080P. The CPU is a solid choice for gaming and streaming. I personally would've gone for the similarly priced Ryzen 5 3600, as it's 7nm technology, and the 6 cores are quite a bit more powerful than the 8 on the 2700x.

but lots of people are saying that the r7 2700x would be better cause it has that extra cores for streaming but if your purely gaming not streaming then yh the r5 3600 is better but idk

On demanding games you will have issues either way no matter how many cores you have because games will use all of them and streaming will also use all of them so there will be conflicts no matter what you do.
Games that don't use all cores will be fine others you will have problems with.

That's why people stream with a GPU or special hardware like elgato or a different PC altogether.

but what cpu what be better then for streaming and gaming on the same computer?
 
Nvidia's current version of NVENC found in their 20-series cards is supposed to be a bit better than other GPU-based encoders currently on the market, so it might be worth looking at an RTX 2060 to perform the encoding on the GPU. That's likely to result in less of a performance hit than using a CPU-based encoder. If you are in the US market, then it's possible to find some 2060s for as little as $300, not too much more than what a 5600 XT costs, though performance in most games should be fairly similar...
