You could see if you could swap out the 1070 with something more powerful and cheaper, you can find much better deals on more powerful cards honestly, I just included it because I didn't want to give an incomplete list. If you bought something slightly more expensive that would still be in his budget, or you could find a 1070 for less money new, or much much less money used. And that would leave room for an aftermarket CPU cooler or some other component to be swapped out/added if he wanted it.

Another good list. Keep in mind you don't need a particularly powerful GPU for streaming as long as it plays the games at a good FPS normally, you're going to want a hyperthreaded, current/previous generation CPU more than anything.

It's much cheaper on Amazon if you don't want the game though

I haven’t used anything other than intel and nvidia in over a decade. How do these cpus and gpus compare?

Depends on what you are doing as AMD is better for some things and Intel is better for others
AMD is better value and is better for multi threaded stuff but Intel leads in single threaded applications

Capturing 1080p game footage? The requirements for capturing 1080p game play are the same as a 1080p gaming rig since capturing comes at almost no performance hit. Are you talking about streaming it?

Do we have any framerate expectations here? The parts I'd pick for a 144fps gaming rig would be much different than for a 60fps streaming rig.
[email protected] means you need a higher core count CPU that doesn't need to be fast with a mid range GPU.
[email protected] means you need faster cores and a much faster GPU.
