At $40, the H60 isn't a bad buy at all, barely more than an old hyper212 evo, but gets similar performance, so if you prefer the looks, it's fine. With decent fan curves it'll run almost silent and even pushed to its limits that 8600 isn't going to stress the coolers ability, making it run quiet anyways. The Intel stock cooler in gta5 or other high cpu game is going to be somewhat audible and temps will be elevated in comparison.

Antec edge gotta go, not a good psu.

Power Supply: SeaSonic - FOCUS Gold 450 W 80+ Gold Certified Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply ($44.99 @ Newegg)

Video Card: EVGA - GeForce GTX 1660 Ti 6 GB XC GAMING Video Card ($289.99 @ B&H)

Performance puts it between a gtx1070 and a rtx2060, so basically it's a better gpu, costs less, and at 120w will run on a decent 450w psu all day long. Has the same power draw as a gtx1060. For a gtx1070 you should really be looking towards a 550w psu, but I'd go with the 1660ti over a 1070 anyday.

Unless you have objections to Amd and Ryzen, the build by Lucky_SLS is quite superior, in every way.

i like yours better but since i dont know much about amd i have to ask. will i see any dramatic difference in this for streaming? also is the not on pcpart picker going to be an issue *The motherboard M.2 slot #1 shares bandwidth with SATA 6.0 Gb/s ports. When the M.2 slot is populated, two SATA 6.0 Gb/s ports are disabled. *
 
The stock intel cooler is entirely adequate for any non overclocked processor.
It comes with thermal paste pre applied.
Only if you will remount the cooler would a tube of paste be needed.
Most any will do.
I would never use a aio cooler unless an air cooler will not do the job.

Does this build make sense??
Yes, but...
One rule of thumb for a balanced gamer is to budget 2x the cost of the processor for the graphics card.
Here, you are about one to one.
Consider taking the some $600 budgeted for both and putting $200 into the cpu and $400 into the graphics card.
For example, a i5-8400 and a rtx2070.

I really like the thought of using a 1tb ssd. But not that team unit.
It gets some 22% negative reviews on newegg:

Stick with Samsung evo for quality and reliability.
Yes, you will pay more. Buy a 500gb unit if budget constraints demand it.
500gb will hold a goodly number of games.

Is there some purpose for an added 500gb HDD?
Why not defer on that until you actually need the space.
If you are thinking of one for backup, make it an EXTERNAL device.

The wattage of the psu you need is determined by your graphics card.
Here is a handy chart:

More importantly, stick with a quality unit like the EDGE, Seasonic focus, evga G3.
Here is a list:

Streaming relies on threads. The Intel 8600 has 6. The Ryzen 2600x has 12. Yes there's a considerable difference.

The m.2 slot is a Sata port. What happens is you only get 6 Sata ports, so if you use an m.2 drive, it disables 2 of the Sata headers. You still get 4 others. You just choose which to use. If you figure only drives use the Sata headers, and you have a m.2 and hdd, that's only 3 used. You'll still have 3 left open.
