Hey guys. I was wanting some help on playing guild wars 2 on a desktop. I currently do not own a desktop and I'm looking to get one hopefully soon. I found this while surfing around the net today and I was wondering if I could get an oppinion on it.

I'm hoping to be able to play GW2 at the best looking medium setting I can get. And I am wanting to try to record video's and livestream as well. Which brings me to my questions
Using the aformentioned build can I play on medium settings without framerate issues, including demanding tasks like in WVW?
Can I possible livestream from it while playing while still having stable gameplay for people to watch?
Is there any alteration to that build or another build entirely that can help me achive all these goals. If it can play the game well and stream it well for around that price (or cheaper) I would like to hear what you have to say.
There is no right or wrong oppinion I am making this just to get a ballpark estimate on what I am needing to search for since I am not very savy with this stuff.
Thanks for you time and help.
*EDIT* I forgot to include some benchmarks I found while looking on this site:
