Hello community!
After yesterday's feedback I made some changes on my build and here is what I have:

I'm from Canada.
Will do duo screening but only using one screen to play.
I already purchase the Case and PSU (got good deals on them).
Play games like Dota2. LoL, starcraft2, diablo3 and call of duty.
I already have the monitors and they are 1080p.
I also do not need much storage at this point (can always add more).

If you do any changes please explain the benefits so I get a better idea what to look for.

Thank you for your time!

That looks absolutely lovely. I would not change a thing for gaming and streaming. :) 

*IF* you decide to install a LOT more games or start doing video capture/editing in addition to streaming, you can just ad a HDD to this. But it is not needed right now for your purposes.

What about a 280x GPU, would that allow me to play and streaming smoothly? Not sure if the 290 is a bit overkill for the games I'm playing.
