Currently I am planning on building a computer and this is my first computer i will have ever built so i am new to this, so correct me if i get anything wrong. the uses of this computer will mainly be for gaming but I want to be able to stream live while im playing. (League Of Legends) without lagging or a major fps drop. Also good enough for my brother who is a photographer to be able to edit his photos and videos on. If possible the max I can go is about 800 but I would prefer to pay less.

Get 1600MHz instead of 1333 - it's only $7 more.
Those are both unreliable power supplies - the one place you do NOT want to skimp. If your power supply goes, it could take your computer with it. They're also way too much power for what you need - a 450 or 500 watt device should be fine, as long as you get one of the current generation of video cards.
On that note, have you considered a Radeon card? They have a LOT better price/performance, and run cooler and more power efficient.
