Yea, its an older processor and i see some older components, but as long as you've got the wattage it should handle it just fine. What do you plan to do with the GPU? in some cases you may be CPU bottlenecked, but i really dont see any issues here

It's a 850W EVGA G1+, so it should be just fine.

If on the same computer, then get a 3700X with a Tomahawk MAX. Keep the RAM though, it's excellent for the 3700X.

If not, I can whip something cheap to stream at 1080p 60fps:

Is this a stream pc build? My plans are to get a 2080 so I can play all my games on ultra, I have a parts list for a stream pc later on

Yes, this is for streaming, so the 6700k can have all resources to the game.
