First time building a gaming PC [$700 budget]

First time building a gaming pc and need a little help. Below is currently what I have chosen on PCPartPicker but I would love suggestions and such on if there is anything I could/should change to get the best bang for my buck. My budget is $700 and sadly I won't be able to go any higher than that so if anything gets changed it would have to keep it around that.

anyways, main reason I ask for suggestions is because of the video card always seeming to be out of stock (I'm guessing because of miners) and I kinda wanna get everything asap as soon as I get the money and don't really feel like waiting 2-3 weeks+ to try and possibly miss being able getting the video card and having to wait even longer.

I'm looking to be able to play games on high/ultra 60+ fps, possibly stream and do some recording/video editing.

Looks good, you will probably be able to record just fine. I can and I have a computer similar to yours. If you don't feel like waiting, you can get a GTX 660 for around the same price, and they have comparable performance.

Do not get that motherboard. Get a non-MSI version... that board is known for catching fire (no pun intented).

I will never buy a console again, they are worthless pieces of junk to me. Last console I bought was a 360 and I only played it twice and then tossed it in my closet to never be played again. I'm a PC gamer and always will be as all my friends are PC gamers.

all I've seen for the one I have on the list is good reviews, albeit there are a few bad ones but more good than bad.. anyways if you think I shouldn't get this motherboard then how about suggestion one that would keep me under the $700 budget.

well that's if my solution was fully solved lol one of my other issues is graphics card, as the one zephyr suggested isnt as good as the asus radeon r9 270x so still asking for that.

oh and the ASUS M5A97 LE R2.0 will put me above my $700 so... yea not fully solved
