New build for gaming/streaming/editing/encoding

EOCFers it's been loooong time since I've posted here and a long time since I've bought PC parts. I'm getting more and more into streaming my gaming on consoles, but want to do more PC gaming and streaming. Doing some research I thought about going with an i7-7700K with a GTX 1070 or a Ryzen 1700 with a GTX 1070. What do the trusted EOCFers have to say? The 7700K has higher clock speeds, but the 1700 has more cores that might be beneficial for streaming while gaming and for video editing. Any PC I build will have 16GB ram minimum.

What say you?

I'm going through a similar upgrade to you.

I've decided on getting the i7 personally - right now, the number of cores AMD is offering is overkill. However, once or if, companies start utilizing Vulcan more and take better advantage of it, I think it will make AMD the better buy.

The Ryzen 1700X is $10 more than the i7-7700K at Newegg.

1700X = 3.4Ghz with 8 cores
7700K = 4.2Ghz with 4 cores

With both of those being paired with a GTX 1070 (or an AMD GPU equivalent for the Ryzen) and 16GB ram, which would fair better for simultaneous gaming/streaming and video editing?

While Intel has been king for streaming and video processing (and still is somewhat), you can't ignore twice the amount of cores/threads and about 20% better overall performance.
With most things being multi-threaded applications your better bet is the 1700X IMO.

What resolution are you gaming/streaming at?
Are you planning on OC'ing?

For your application, Ryzen is a more cost efficient buy.
Stick with the Nv cards.
AMD has nothing comparable in the price per performance. You'll be much better off.

Get a ryzen, use CPU for stream encoding. You'll have a smoother overall experience with the ryzen with gaming while streaming.

I forgot I started this thread. I went with the Ryzen 1700X and an EVGA 1080. I also got a BenQ 27" 1440 144hz monitor for a good price.

Probably not. I got it for $520. I wanted to get a 1080Ti, but every time I was about to make the purchase they sold out.
