Hello, I'm looking into getting a new computer that'll be able to stream 1080p gameplay on twitch and still run games at ultra quality without dropping frames.
I'm probably not going to be playing the games in 4k so as long as they work on ultra at 1080p I'll be happy.
I would also like it to be able to support my work, but it's not very hardware consuming considering that it runs fine on the cheap little 800$ laptop I have right now.

My only concern is knowing if this is the right fit or not for everything I'd like from it?

Welcome to the forum MrBringBacon!

This rig will do the job you need and much more, for quite a long time ahead I suspect! Lots of good choices here, and I can suggest a few improvements.

Excellent CPU, motherboard, RAM and GPU. Best case and cooling!

Recommend you switch to the best Corsair AX1200i 1200w all modular all digital PSU with a whopping 10 yr MFG warranty.   I own one of these and you won't find a better PSU.

Definitely need to change Drive 1.   You selected a standard SATA III M.2 SSD.    Switch to the Samsung 970 Pro NVME SSD or thetop of line Samsung 970 Plus NVME SSD for 5x faster performance over SATA speed drives.   NVME SSD are faster because they utilize the speedier video PCIE X4 bus of your motherboard.

In a case with 14 case fans, a fan quality upgrade would be very meaningful.   Use the better Corsair LL Series RGB fan upgrade or best Corsair ML Series RGB fan upgrade, and switch to the Corsair Commander Pro control module.   As a result, using Corsair iCue software you would be able to control fan speeds and coordinate the RGB lights on ALL your Corsair RGB equipped components and synch them all.

BTW, unless you need to combine the monitor with this purchase, you could do better price wise and performance on monitors shopped online.   Look for NVidia GSync approved monitors off of NVidias GSync tested list on their website.   For best color quality many of us here use IPS 1080P or 2K monitors from Dell, Dell-Alienware, Asus and LG.    

Lastly... you are building this DS Aventum X rig in the massive best water-cool-everything case on the entire planet...will keep frosty temps on everything!    So I definitely recommend that you do a full Stage 2 Overclock on the I9-9900K 8-core/16-thread processor and get the full CPU performance you are paying for.   If you don't fully OC, you don't get it all! Intel engineers their K Class & X Class processors to be fully Overclocked, you have the very best water cooling possible, and DS are the Overclocking experts with over a decade of experience setting up high end Overclocked gaming rigs like this one.   

See what you think.....Its going to be a very strong build!

It is always best to get what you want, so you have your best experience for a very long time to come. Having said, I can also say your build is way more than you need for the stated purposes. If budget is of any concern, you could do well for a lot less $$. Just sayin'.
