I would like to make my current pc my streaming pc and build a new PC for the gaming.
My current PC specs are:
GPU: EVGA - GeForce GTX 770 2GB Superclocked ACX Video Card
CPU: Intel - Core i5-3350P 3.1GHz Quad-Core Processor
RAM: Corsair - Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory

for my new dedicated gaming pc I plan on getting a GTX 1050 TI 4GB(4GB for multi monitor?)

What processor and RAM should I go for on my gaming build? I'm not looking to get the absolute best, but I'm not looking to get the cheapest either. Anything that will be a good bang for buck I suppose. I may eventually use the new gaming pc build I get as my streaming pc in the future and build a new gaming PC again when the next gen of GPUS are out etc.(basically doing what I'm doing another time, switching the gaming to the streaming and building a new gaming)

Any input? would my current pc be good for streaming or would I have to upgrade that as well? I don't know much about how dual stuff works and not too much and not a wiz on gamin pc builds in general. I don't know how all the compatibility works etc either if that's even an issue
What should I get for my gaming pc and what should I do with my streaming as far as CPU GPU and RAM.
I plan on having a total of 3 monitors in the future but currently have 2. I know it's a lot of questions. Thanks

P.S. capture card or no capture card?

either the i7-7700k or i7-8xxxk are the best gaming CPUs. The Ryzen7 is less money but is demonstrably the lesser performer. On the other hand, the Ryzen 5 is considered a better value than the i5-xxxxk. You really need to look at your total budget and decide.
