You could do much better at this budget.
Take a look? http://pcpartpicker.com/p/CFJ6Lk
Also, I highly suggest using ethernet for your streaming.
Could I fit this inside a Nzxt h440 case (red) with a optical drive
The H440 does not have a slot for an optical drive but you can still run a external. Otherwise the H440 is a great case, I have one and it is built solid.
Thank you for your advice also is overclocking recommend for gaming/editing
So here is what I got http://pcpartpicker.com/p/K3qKMp I modidied the build to fit another color scheme ~laszlo
Not bad. Although I really can't recommend the 980. It is too expensive. So much more than a 970 or 290X for like 5-10FPS more at 1080p and about the same performance at higher resolutions.
There is no 980 in there. It's the Zotac 970. ;)
