You should go with i7 or FX8XXX series, for recording with FRAPS etc you'll want beasty GPU, it also depends on graphics level you wish to play and record, if you wish to stream via twitch the GPU doesn't have to be a beast but you'll need a good upload speed.

Give me a budget and I could build you something nice (also I'd like to know if recording is meant for saving on HDD and upload later to sites like YouTube or stream live to twitch etc)

We need way more information. Give us a price range at least.

http://pcpartpicker.com/p/3h3xe I hope this build is fine, I could have cut on the CPU and replaced the 1Tb to 2-4Tb HDD but I think 1Tb should do the work just fine unless you're planning to record an hour + sessions.

This build also enables you to SLI in the near future for more power

thanks @PredatorRules, One question though, is advertising my YouTube channel against the rules on this forum. sounds like a stupid question but I'm new.

Do you have a microcenter near by? You can definitely pick up a nice cpu/motherboard combo there.

If you can't you can at least have staples price match the 4770k (K version) and get it for 270.

Not sure, if you intend to stay active on this forum then I guess it's ok, if not it's considered as spam, specially due to that you're new to this forum.
