https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/HkBPZ8 Here's a thought, keeping your board and putting in an i7 with 32 gig of memory. You seem to have all the other good stuff.

The 32 gb of memory seems like overkill i7 is a good suggestion however

Totally overkill. To quote the author Robert Heinlein "anything worth doing is worth overdoing." But I get the point, waste of money.

haha good quote but as just a casual streamer i cant deem the worth of 32gb of ram especially due to how pricy it has become thanks for the suggestion tho

The build is damn good, so I added an extra 2x4 kit so you'll have a total of 16GB which is better for today, and added an 1440p Monitor.

Just click into my build and scroll down until you find the review for Dell - S2417DG Monitor I wrote. It explains everything you need to know about that Monitor and why you should get it for your budget.
