Why bother posting if you already ordered it? Looks like an iBuyPower or CyberPowerPC configuration. That's a lot of money to spend on a system with generic RAM, generic power supply, & no data drive. I've bought cars for less, lol.

Do you think it will do ok for recording and streaming? It seems like a pretty good PC, it is From iBuyPower

It's a shame you didn't post for advice before you ordered the PC. The power supply is the backbone of any system. The fact that you didn't post a make/model is a concern. The so-called "standard" PSUs offered by iBuyPower are usually low quality generic & can lead to problems. Considering the cost of the CPU & video card, you should have gotten a decent PSU to protect your investment. As for recording and streaming - of course it will handle it. So would a PC that costs a heck of a lot less.

Recently I priced out a possible new build one day when I was bored (self build so components only).
Gen Core i5 9600K (6 core)
Z390 Gigabyte MB
Noctua tower cooler w/120mm fan
G.Skill 2x8GB 3200MHz
Corsair 600W
Western Digital Black PCIe SSD 500GB (or possibly Samsung 970Evo)
GTX 1050 Ti (I don't do heavy gaming)
Everything I chose for a balance of performance and value except went lower on the graphics for my needs but significantly higher in performance other than that.

To this point I think I was in the mid $900.US plus case and reuse 1TB WB Black HD and DVD drive. Manual OC, etc.
You probably would do nicely with a GTX 2070 and stay under $1700 US if you built it.
For 2K or so $ you could go with a Core i7 9700K, GTX 2080, and up the MB to a Gaming 5

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
