Here is a great price/performance starter PC. It will play league above 100fps (so 60 capped with v-sync) for only around $500, all parts from Newegg.

http://pcpartpicker.com/p/20iRk

CPU: AMD FX-6300 3.5GHz 6-Core Processor ($119.99 @ Newegg)
Motherboard: ASRock 970 Extreme3 R2.0 ATX AM3+ Motherboard ($69.99 @ Newegg)
Memory: Crucial Ballistix Sport XT 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($56.99 @ Newegg)
Storage: Seagate Barracuda 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($69.99 @ Newegg)
Video Card: MSI Radeon HD 7850 2GB Video Card ($129.99 @ Newegg)
Case: Rosewill REDBONE ATX Mid Tower Case ($24.99 @ Newegg)
Power Supply: Antec Neo Eco 520W 80 PLUS Certified ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply ($34.99 @ Newegg)
Optical Drive: LG GH24NS95 DVD/CD Writer ($15.00 @ Newegg)
Total: $511.93

Has everything except the OS, but since you already have an HDD from your E-machine, you can use that as the main drive and either drop the extra HDD or use it for more storage. I suggest using a clone program and transferring your current data on a new/faster HDD that is SATA 6GB compatible.

Oh, I've been on twitch for a while. For a streaming streaming PC, I know just the thing, however your stream quality is limited more by your internet. You'll need around 5mb upload for a 1920x1080 stream or 2mb upload for a 1280x720 stream (not including game bandwidth).

Something like this would be great:

http://pcpartpicker.com/p/20BFa

CPU: AMD FX-8350 4.0GHz 8-Core Processor ($184.99 @ Newegg)
CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper TX3 54.8 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler ($19.99 @ Newegg)
Motherboard: ASRock 970 Extreme3 R2.0 ATX AM3+ Motherboard ($69.99 @ Newegg)
Memory: Crucial Ballistix Sport XT 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($56.99 @ Newegg)
Storage: Seagate Barracuda 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($69.99 @ Newegg)
Video Card: Asus GeForce GTX 760 2GB Video Card ($249.99 @ Microcenter)
Case: Xion XON-570 ATX Mid Tower Case ($34.99 @ Newegg)
Power Supply: Corsair CX 600W 80 PLUS Bronze Certified ATX12V Power Supply ($54.99 @ Microcenter)
Optical Drive: LG GH24NS95 DVD/CD Writer ($19.99 @ Newegg)
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 8.1 - OEM (64-bit) ($99.99 @ Newegg)
Total: $856.90

You'll still need a monitor, peripherals, etc. Also, the price is after the rebates, if you have a hard limit that can't be broken then you'd have to skimp in some places.

Wireless adapter: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I don't suggest doing wireless, you will see lag and your stream won't be consistent, consider running a cable to your room by buying a long LAN cable, drilling a hole in your floor where your PC is and router is, then running the cable through the basement. I've done it, just takes a drill.

syncmaster t220 is the monitor that is just sitting there upstairs in my mom and dads room so they will more than likely give it to me.

You'll be able to play most games on high settings with that setup. The reason I picked the 8350 CPU is because it got good benchmarks for gaming while streaming (review by Tek Syndicate) and the 760 is a great card for gaming on high settings.

Will it be a problem if there is 2 modems in the house? and there is also at least 2-6 devices on the home wifi is that going to be a problem?

it says that ASRock 970 Extreme3 R2.0 ATX AM3+ Motherboard has an onboard USB 3.0 header, but the Xion XON-570 ATX Mid Tower Case does not have front panel USB 3.0 ports.

I only picked that case because you had already mentioned it and thought you liked how it looks, you can get a different one, but unless you actually have a usb 3.0 device, the things you plug in will only get 2.0 speeds anyways. Check some other cases that have 3.0 if you want that feature.

I have an Intel myself, but like I said, a review on gaming WHILE streaming (media encoding at the same time and using more cores) shows that for a smaller price, AMD is the way to go at this budget. If he had $300-500 to spend on just a processor, maybe then I'd say Intel.
