Ryzen 2600 vs 1700 for Streaming

I'm helping a friend upgrade his PC. He wants to be able to stream games, and edit and post videos. I'm not sure what software he uses.

He's on a tighter budget, but since he only really needs mobo, CPU and ram, my first thought was R5 2600, based on testing by GamersNexus.

When pricing out the build, I noticed that the R7 1700 is only $5 more than the 2600. Assuming average overclocks for both chips (2600 @ 4.1 and 1700 @ 3.9), is the sacrifice of frequency and minor IPC improvements worth the upgrade to 16 threads?

Thanks in advance.
