Hi,
I'm looking for a pc that can play and live stream games on 1080p 144fps. I'm aiming for a build that's slightly overkill so that it will last a long time. This is what I've picked, please let me know if there's anything you'd change and why. Thank you!

Please post the full specs with the unique configuration link. Your build could do with some changes. You have an old generation CPU with an inadequate motherboard. You need faster RAM. The 3080 is massive overkill for 1080p. Storage could do with some adjustment. I would go for a better PSU. The cooler isn’t good enough for the selected PSU. Finally, what is you budget.

wow that's a lot of changes, okay. Looking to spend anything between 1.5k and 2.5k after vat (whatever offers better price to performance)

This should do you nicely at 1080p, and have a good base for upgrades

Ok if you had £300-£500 for a monitor budget this would take you 1440p

Thank you very much. Can I ask about the storage arrangement and why go for 2 ssds rather than 1? I think the only other part I'm unsure about is the cpu, specifically which models are better and what I'd need to be doing to require each model .

Ok the storage is as follows:

a normal HDD for general storage such as documents, photos, videos etc
the first really fast M.2 is for OS and programs
the second M.2 is your games drive, keeping games and OS seperate means you don't have to download & reinstall all your games should you ever have to clean install the OS

This is a killer build (nice one MartinR36)
I'll add re the storage... HDD's are too slow for modern AAA games. Minutes long loads are a drag, possibly doubly so for streaming.
A SATA SSD is the minimum you'd want to avoid that but if you have a spare m.2 slot... well, might as well use it.

As for the CPU, AMD currently reign. The 5600X is about the best overall mid budget CPU rn, with the 5800X being just that bit more beast. That's your overkill... or extra longevity at least.
