Would I be able to upgrade this for better streaming quality

It seems that some parts are upgradable, CPU/GPU, SSD, etc... but if you're already willing to spend $600 why not build something new?

What could I build better

I don't think you can build anything better. (you could get a 1600 and a 580 for the same price, but you'd have to compromise on stream quality)

What about if I was playing a game without streaming? What would the fps be on current titles before & after the upgrades? Also how laggy do you think it would be streaming with the factory parts on this pc. Would it be dramatic or just a little noticable?

If we take streaming out of the equation, it should be fine

For streaming, since you’ve got a decent CPU, you’d do very well (the resources can be split up for encoding)

So I'm good with the factory build, but the parts you recommend would just boost it. If you can, can you make a small parts list?

For $600 you can do better, also here's a shortened link.

Even with going with cheapest parts (did make a few changes to keep the price down (8GB 580 and 120GB SSD)), it's $130 less, even though it's used.

I read it's 10% a year, though, it might be less since it's a still a very capable system. I figured out about $585, which is close to the price, though the R7 2700 isn't 2 years yet, so I'll call it 1.5 years (first price was 4/14/18), and thus $618.69.
