8700k would do a better job at streaming as it has 6 cores 12 threads and is faster and the 7700k has 4 cores 8 threads. You should go with the 8700k if you have the choice, but you'll also need a motherboard that supports 8gen CPUs

Get a 8 core Ryzen (2700 or better). Around 20% better performance using all cores (which means better performance when streaming and/or recording when playing) and lower price than the 8700k.
