This is my first time building a PC, i need it to be able to run FFXIV: A Realm Reborn on full settings while still being able to stream on twitch with max FPS. I picked out some parts that I thought looked good but it's way more than my budget, I need it to be around 750-800 USD. Could you guys help me maybe pick out some cheaper parts that would still let me do what I'm trying to do with this PC, aka run that game n stream on twitch. THANK YOU SO MUCH =]

I would like to not change the video card, and I would like to keep the SSD seeing as how I hear it's leap and bounds better than a regular HDD.

I am a complete noob when it comes to knowing what I need to run my game and streaming, maybe I built a computer up there that is way overpowered and I could get what I need for much less money. Please just help me downgrade some of these parts so I can be in my budget range!! Thank you. One more thing, closer to 750 would be better seeing as how I still need to buy windows 7. I'm just not including the price of that in my budget cause I may have a copy I could borrow from my uncle, just not sure yet. so yeah 750 is better but 800-820 would be okayyy.

Total: $997.00 USD before rebates and shipping.

First off that case is utter garbage - no one should buy anything made by Raidmax. Second, you're using an mATX board. If you're not overclocking you can save a lot of money there. Maybe try something like this:
