I will use it for gaming and twitch streaming (mostly mobas and indie games, medium-high setting AAAs). Photoshop / video editing / music production stuff at hobby level. Few engineering programs like Solidworks, Matlab and light coding. Also I really want to run rainmeter full time.
Since this will be my first build I didnt want to go all-in. After I learn and experience the basics of building a PC, I really want to go crazy though and spent a few grands on latest tech and custom-loops. So I set a budget around $800 exluding peripherals, but I want to save as much as I can so I can spent the extra money on better screen, musical equipment etc. Also I am from Turkey and will order most parts from Amazon, so int. shipping prices will effect the budget too.
Thanks in advance

Any reason to go full ATX with this build? New to this.

Build Help/Ready:

Have you read the sidebar and rules? (Please do)
Yes.
What is your intended use for this build? The more details the better.
Wanted to learn how to build a PC, was given a R9 270X graphics card by someone tearing down their bitcoin rig. Thought I'd build a decent gaming PC around that part. I'm definitely not at the cutting edge of PC gaming, but I'd like to play games like Skyrim with decent performance.
If gaming, what kind of performance are you looking for? (Screen resolution, FPS, game settings)
Best answer I can give: 1080p resolution, consistent 30+ FPS with high/medium graphics settings. Whatever I can get from this graphics card.
What is your budget (ballpark is okay)?
Including what I would have paid for the graphics card, something like $600, more like $500 without it.
In what country are you purchasing your parts?
'Murica
Post a draft of your potential build here (specific parts please). Consider formatting your parts list. Don't ask to be spoonfed a build (read the rules!).

Provide any additional details you wish below.
Main questions: 1. Is there any reason I should be going full ATX with the mobo and case? 2. Is the PSU overpowered for what I'm asking it to do? 3. Are there any obvious incongruities in this build?
As I said, I'm very new to this, so any feedback is welcome.
Thanks Reddit!
