Looking to build a computer under 1000$ Using the BitFenix Mini-ITX Tower Case

I have never built a computer before. Although this is going to be my first build.
I wanted to make a build with the i7-6700k using the BitFenix Mini as my Case.
I currently use my laptop to do all my current duties, to remote working and gaming. Current games I play that my laptops allow me to, are LOL, maplestory, runescape, diablo... I wanted something I could play at max graphics with no lag. Games intreasted in are csgo, wolf team, WoW. I tried staying under 1200$
Looking for a computer I can use as an everyday, editing, streaming, working, and gaming.
"Also looking for queitness"
If possible to tone down the price of the build, to use something else in its place for future upgrades options.


Laptop Sony Model # - SVE1513KCXS

    Which currency? CAD or USD?
    If you plan on editing, streaming, and working, either a Ryzen 1700X or i7 6800k to 6950X is most suitable so you would also need an X99 mobo or similar.
    If you plan on just playing games and general purpose, an i5 7600k would do you great. The current mobo you have is most suitable for that purpose.


    For the type of games you play, a 1070 is way too overkill. I would suggest a 1050 Ti or 1060.

    Here are some suggestions in USD:

    Most bang for your buck for gaming (though, for your purpose, the 1070 won't be necessary).
