you should be looking at an R5-1600 based rig...

 

the way to streaming and gaming is not to start with a CPU barely adequate stuttering badly  with either...


Asus Z270A Prime/7700K/32 GB DDR4-3200/GTX1060

I have no idea what your talking about, I don't know what an R5-1600 based rig means either or what adequate stuttering means.

 

Its my first time building a PC and I'm checking out these websites that suggest me 500$ budget gaming pc builds

Paladins and CS:GO. Streaming as well.

 

Its a Intel G4560, now someone mentioned I should use Ryzen 3.

 

My budget is somewhere about 650$ USD but US parts are cheaper there than here is what I  observe so its rough to get the same parts for equal price.

I guess MDD1963 is referring to "gaming and streaming" meaning live broadcasting your gaming sessions on the internet?  This takes quite a lot of computing power because the computer has to simultaneously run the game, and do a lot of video processing in real time in the background. The R5-1600 (Ryzen 5 1600) is a powerful 6 core processor, up to this sort of task.

 

An alternative way of reading "gaming and streaming" is you want to game and separately use streaming services like Netflix, YouTube or whatever.  The games you mention are not particularly demanding in terms of system requirements (the spec you list will easily handle them) and any modern computer can handle Netflix etc.

Yes, broadcasting it on the internet would my build be viable to record smooth gameplay?

 

How about longevity(whatever that means) and what kind of casing I should get

I've never done that, so can't speak from experience, but from what I'm reading I think you would probably need a higher spec for live streaming.  For example Twitch.TV recommends a minimum of a fast Core i5 (e.g. the i5-7600K) or AMD equivalent (I would think Ryzen 5 series) with a decent GPU.  Some go as far as having two PC's, one running the game and the other doing the video work.

 

This article suggests you can get away with a lower end solution like a Pentium G4560 for simple games, with the GPU handling the video encoding work - http://www.logicalincrements.com/articles/streaming

 

Cases are personal preference and depends what you can get in your area.  I like ones with well designed cable management as a minimum requirement (e.g. most of the Corsair cases are well thought out).

Ryzen 5 series is excellent choice for streaming. Pentium G is just not enough. Ryzen 3 is fairly good choice but if streaming heavy games, Ryzen 5 is much better.

If you can link shop you are buying and budget, I could check good parts.

Thx. What do you think of changing the Graphics card to a NVIDIA GTX 1050 Ti?

GTX 1050 Ti is bit more expensive and considering current situation, I wouldn't pay any more for already expensive GPU market. Also AMD cards generally hold their value/usefulness longer than Nvidia's.

Still, if you want, you can swap it without problems.
