I have been looming at the gma6600 from cyberpowerPC.
16GB
I-5
I NEED TO
Stream overwatch, paladins, pubg, fortnite, emoji, ETC

WHILE STREAMING using streamline OBS (SLOBS).
I am moving from a MacBook pro which I burnt out during a fortnite stream!
I have $825 to spend and need it within a week due to upcoming oncology surgery and treatment Oct 15.

I was bamboozled and harassed at best buy. I'd like quality and peace of mind for my channel and computing needs in place Prior to being housebound for 6 months.
I live in massachusetts.
 
So here's my build proposition for you. It has a black & red theme with a hint of RGB.

The build is slightly over your budget.

I went for a Ryzen setup because at this pricepoint with Intel, you'll need to get a non-overclockeable CPU as good overclockeable Intel motherboards can get quite pricey and you'll also need to buy a cooler on top. The Ryzen CPU I picked comes with an integrated heat sink and will also help you with your streaming with its superior multithreaded performance.

Also, at this price point, with a GTX 1060 6Gb it won't make a difference for in terms of FPS for your games by going with Ryzen.

The GTX 1060 6Gb with this CPU will allow you to stream PUBG (being the most demanding game on your list) at 70fps on all ultra settings, but since no one plays with shadows, foliage and effects as its actually more advantageous this way, you'll be able to hit 100fps stable.

Let me know what you think.
