I want to stream / record: It appears that my PC can'T handle gaming / recording at the same time:
CPU:
Intel i5 6600K
RAM:
8 GB RAM
GPU:
Nvidia geForce GTX 1060 6GB
600w EVGA PSU

Better to buy a new PC as secondary streaming PC or upgrade existing one:
So I want to be able to stream at 1080 @ 60 fps but starting off will ne 720p @ 60 fps.

What games do you plan on the system at the moment? Please don't include etc in that sentence. Ideally you could build a powerful system that is capable of both streaming and gaming but then again, you can also build a system that is only responsible for streaming duties. How much do you have for the project?

BTW, always list your specs like so:
CPU:
Motherboard:
Ram:
SSD/HDD:
GPU:
PSU:
Chassis:
OS:

Budget?

Selling the 6600K/MB/RAM and grabbing a 1600 or 1700, B450 MB & 16gb (2x8gb @3000-3200mhz) would be ideal for gaming/streaming due to the extra cores/threads over the 6600K. The rest of the parts could stay the same but you will need to reinstall Windows due to the hardware change.
 
For streaming I recommend a higher core count that cannot be achieved with your current platform no matter what the upgrade is. Third gen Ryzen will be releasing about 1-2 months and will have higher core count processors and better single core performance at a reasonable price. If you cannot wait this long, I can spec you out a system if you can tell me the following:
  1. Monitor's resolution and refresh rate.
  2. What games you play.
  3. What is the max budget you can spend?
  4. Do you like RGB?

Uff streaming games like Sekiro/Pubg/League of legends/

CPU: Intel i5 6600K
Motherboard: ASrock b350 (I think)
Ram: 8gb ddr4 (2133)
SSD/HDD: 240 gb SSD / 1 tb HDD (samsung ssd / toshiba hdd)
GPU: Nvidia geForce GTX 1060 6GB

Where to sell the Mobo and CPU / ram? Actually no clue / never done that before.
budget is limit around 700-1000 Euro. But saving some money always good right?
Isnt there like an expensive capture card needed in 2 pc Setup? That worth it?

You could use the current system with a Elgato then use your 1060 6gb in the new streaming build.

Monitor resolution is 1920x1080 @ 144 hz.
Gamer mentioned above
Max budged overall will be 1000 €. I can wait for the new ryzen gen. Does only the CPU change or do i need a higher end mainboard aswell?
I guess i like rgb but not that every freakn fan needs to be in color. :)

WildCard999:
First of all thanks for the list - looks like a good PC.
"You could use the current system with a Elgato then use your 1060 6gb in the new streaming build. "
SO how to understand this? I just buy a new graphic card and use the 1060 in the streaming pc?
Or do you mean i shall get a single PC setup?
It probably obvious af but i aint get it. sorry

I'd go with wildcard's build but get a R7 2700 8 core 16 thread processor for the streaming. Encoding/Processing overhead of streaming and new upcoming triple A titles will make use of the extra threads.

No need for a new GPU, the 1060 6gb goes into the gaming rig while you use the Elgato/iGPU on the 6600K for the streaming building.
