Hey Got some used parts off of an acquaintance fairly cheap (Case, Mobo, Cpu, Ram, WiFi Card) and made a build for gaming/streaming for my fiancée. Just want some opinions and maybe even some Advice on where to go next with it and what upgrades would be worthwhile. I Plan on upgrading to a whole new socket when I have the money to do so, and ill move this into a pc for someone else as a backup since theirs is old and on its way out.

Like I said just looking for some opinions and maybe reccomendations, I plan on upgrading the case, then cpu cooler, then after that probably moving to a newer cpu/mobo. Only went sandy cuz I got the parts on the cheap. I'm Going to upgrade to the nzxt Noctis 450 case for her (with engraving and a custom paintjob) and I'm probably going to upgrade to lga 1151 or 2011-3 still debating on which. oh also will probably replace her psu when I have more money with a higher rated one (EVGA SuperNova P Series 850W.)

Honestly i wouldn't replace the PSU. There are betters but its not bad. Considering you already have it. This build has 32 gigs of ram which is a lot. I would just buy the case, a Z97 motherboard, a cryorig H7 and (i5-4690k or i7-4790k)depending on what this build is for.

well I Actually got the case, mobo, cpu, wifi card, and ram for $300 which I didn't think was too bad. I Plan on moving this Psu into another Pc that is in need of one plus the only reason I didn't get the one I wanted was because this one was on sale.

I Planned on going with the kraken x61 once I upgraded her case, Any thoughts on that?
