A RAM upgrade to 16GB might help, I would try that first. Worst case scenario you can use that RAM for a new build of you're still not be completely happy with how it performs. Streaming definitely affects gaming performance but your specs seem to be okay for 1080p, depending on which games you play. Do some monitoring using Windows Task Manager to see if buying more RAM will help.
