Final List Opinions Wanted

So I have spent a couple months on this list, creating, revising, and starting over a couple of times. I have used the feedback from others to help create it. Now I feel that I am ready to start buying, but just wanted some last bit of either constructive criticism or positive feedback. Gaming is my main focus with this Computer (Minecraft, Grand Theft Auto, Call of Duty...), but I also would like to Stream/Record videos. I will only be using two monitors and the third is just a back-up. Like I said just looking for some last opinions on the list before I buy. Thanks in advance!

The partslist looks pretty good! I don't know what your budget is exactly, but I made a few changes I think you'll benefit from.

I changed your 3GB 1060 to a 6GB one. You'll definitely want that extra ram. To make room in your budget, I switched your SSD out for a slightly cheaper one. Just an option.

Also, it's usually better to get a PCI wireless card versus a USB one. I found a cheaper one that will most likely perform better as well.

Otherwise, like I said, very solid partslist.

Here's a build with my suggestions. A 1700 with a stock cooler is a fantastic deal. It should be able to OC to 3.8Ghz, maybe 3.9 if you're lucky. You save quite a bit of money by choosing it too, which I put towards a better motherboard, in the Taichi. It has the best VRM's from what I've heard, and has built in wifi, so you don't need the USB NIC. A 480 4GB will outperform the 1060 GB, and has the extra GB of VRAM, which can help in larger games. GTA is a good example, that likes to use over 3GB most of the time. Take a look at getting Freesync monitors, to take advantage of one of the biggest reasons to buy AMD cards. I have a Dell SE2717H, that I would recommend. It goes on sale every once in a while for under $150.
