Hello guys, as the title says, i'm looking for advice on how to build a decent PC that is specifically made for gaming and livestreaming. I have had no experience whatsoever with building PC's. Though i have found some parts that i thought would be good, got completely destroyed by reviews on the web, so i don't have any preference with parts.

Approximate Purchase Date: Hopefully this month.

Budget Range: 600-800 US Dollars

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, Livestreaming, Video Editing, Watching YouTube videos, Surfing The Web.

Are you buying a monitor: No, i've got that covered ;) 

Do you need to buy OS: No, i've got a copy.

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: I have no preferences, although i heard Newegg often has rebates.

Location: Netherlands, but i will surely be shipping from the USA, so that's no problem.

Parts Preferences: Absolutely none, i need advice from people with experience on this site, so choose the parts that you think fit best for my usage.

Overclocking: I will be Overclocking, but not at the CPU's max, as i don't want to switch over to liquid cooling for the time being. Preferably around 4 Ghz

SLI or Crossfire: No, i don't really want microstuttering happening and i think i will find a better card than 2 combined cards for a better price.

Your Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080 and a second monitor that's 1600x900, although the second one won't be used for gaming, just for looking at the livestream chat and such.

Additional Comments: I would like a build that is able to run BF3 ultra @ 1920x1080 @ ~60fps, as that kinda is a standard for PC's nowadays.

And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: Im upgrading from my old OEM PC because it seems that it's slowly dying after 6 years of usage, i wanna build a PC myself because it will be cheaper in the long run as if i were to buy an 800 Dollar OEM PC for half the performance.

Thank you very much.

I'm fine on the internet side, i have Fiber Optics which usually gets me 100 Mbps downstream and 10 Mbps Upstream.

ah cool, i would go with avilash build, seems fine to me, on the software side of things i would recommend a little program called open broadcaster for twitch streaming, has a 64bit version and is far lighter weight and more reliable than xsplit and less system intensive for higher resolutions and bitrates.

it even includes features that are in the paid for version of xplit such as multiple scenes, overlays, multiple sources in one stream etc such as webcams.

Best solution

You said you will be clocking it to 4.0..so I gave you one..:D 
AMD FX series has immense OCing capabilities so you wanna get 4.8?..then get a corsair cooler..though i strictly don't recommend OCing cuz it voids warranty and lifetime so I suggested you something you won't have to oc.
