I am planning on doing my first gaming pc build and have a budget of $2500. I currently am playing on a ASUS ROG laptop that has a i7 and nvidia geforce 960. I plan on using this to stream with and the other for gaming unless it would be better to just use one pc. I am new to this and really just want to make sure I am buying the best things for this. I don't need an OS or any other things such as monitor or mouse and keyboard. I am in the U.S.

Let's dial back the GPU a little and put some money back into your pocket (perhaps for a monitor upgrade!). You don't say what resolution monitor you have, if it's 1080p this list will get pretty close to whatever fps you want; at 1440p you might have to juggle graphics settings vs fps a little, but you should still be well over 60 fps even in the difficult titles at max. If you have 4K and a 60 Hz monitor, up the GPU to a 2080 Super. If you have 4K and a faster monitor, stick with the 2080 Ti.

A 3700X is a 65w TDP part. No desktop CPU really needs pumped liquid cooling, but for the 3700X it's just a waste of money IMO.

Yeah there is no reason for me to make a build for you as these are your best options.
