As for the desktop, let's just say it will have an FX 9590 in it.
If you want a different direction you should consider an Intel 4670k or a 4770k if video editing/livestreaming. Spending almost 400$ on the one you listed is just silly considering it has worse ipc, uses over 2x power, and produces more heat.
It is possible Amd will make a solid product in the future but for now there really is no substitute especially when building a gaming rig.
