I'm totally new when it comes to building a PC and I'd love to know if this build is any good and what kind of improvements would be needed for my new build before I order it. I'm looking for a 1440p pc which is capable of streaming.

My current build idea:

Thanks.
The only thing I would change is going to dual SSDs. One at 480-512GB for an OS/Application drive and another 1TB or larger for Games. These are what I would use.

The two come out to the same price as the 970 EVO by itself. While the 660p isn't as fast as the 970, you won't not any difference in games.
