Ok, your CPU is overclockable, but with that motherboard it wont. I will change to one that does, I exceeded by 60$ because overclockable motherboard are more expensive+ the cpu cooler to keep it cool. I added an Optical Drive, you should be fine with the build I did. My recommendation is to buy a second monitor as soon as you can, because livestreaming with one monitor is hard, unless your game is a small window like binding of isaac. You could buy a 7870 if you need a 1300$ budget.
