Looking for opinions on my new build, getting ready to hit the buy button but want to make sure I'm making the right choice.

Basically I want to be able to stream, record gaming and well obviously game a lot. I'm trying to get the best PC I can afford at the moment and that's roughly £3500. Would anyone change any part and if so any reasons to do so? Also, I haven't found the option to ask PCS to overclock my CPU, and just wondering if they did that and where you request it?

I would highly recommend an AMD build as for the uses you describe, the R9 3900x will outperform any intel offering.
I was lead to beleive streaming is much better on an Nvidia card than AMD due to their streaming encoding being much better? Is that wrong?

My knowledge when it comes to most things hardware related is lacking, what parts would I need to replace if I went with the R9 3900x? Or is that the only thing I'd have to change to make it better?

It's a completely different platform here:


The 3900x is out of stock until december, but they've also got a 3950x about to be released which is set to be an absolutel stonker.
