1. A balanced gamer will budget about 2x the cost of the cpu for the graphics card.
A i5-8400 paired with a GTX1060, even the 3gb version might game better.

2. Non K suffix processors come with a perfectly adequate stock cooler. No need for an aftermarket cooler.

3. Corsair VS power supplies are considered as tier 5/6 on this list:

You probably should buy at least a 450w psu to accommodate a stronger graphics card in the future.
Here is a handy chart:

I like the Seasonic focus units.

I will never again build without a ssd for the "C" drive. It makes everything you do much quicker.
120gb is minimum, it will hold the os and a handful of games.
But, many things default to the "C" drive.
When a SSD nears full, it will lose performance and endurance.
240gb is the recommended minimum.

If you can go 240gb, or 500gb you may never need a hard drive.

You can defer on the hard drive unless you need to store large files such as video's.
It is easy to add a hard drive later.

Samsung EVO is a good choice for performance and reliability.

5. What is your case?

Since this is a stream/game build, and also targeting 1080p 60fps gameplay, I would advise ryzen 2600 build :

Go for ryzen 2600 with 2x8gb of rams with a B450 mobo.

You can try initially to skip the ssd (use that money for 16 gigs of 3000/3200mhz rams) and use like 250gb of hdd and 2gb of system ram for a faster storage volume using AMD StoreMI

Other ppl covered about gpu and psu. Don't find anything more to add to it.

But my suggestion : 75hz 1080p freesync screens are cheap. So a 4gb rx580/570 can be great with it.
