Hope you guys can help me out. And maybe tell me whats outdated and whats the sweetspot

CPU: Intel i5 6600k
GPU: Radeon RX 580
Mobo: MSi something/
SSD: 250GB
HD: 2TB
Ram: 8GB

Is my cpu the best option to upgrade or gpu or ram idk.. Hope to hear from you guys!
 
Your GPU is good for Assetto Corsa/F1, no need to change that.
I'd upgrade your cpu/mobo/ram.

6 core 12 thread cpu should make your streaming much more easier.
Paired with a good and a silent cooler, you will barelly hear it.
Solid motherboard to go with it.
2x8gb 3200mhz seems to be a requirement these days.

Solid build .. the only thing I'd change is the MB. I'd go with a B560 board seeing how it supports 3200MHz RAM and allows for memory OC. It also allows for an upgrade path.

Maybe something like this.
