Default Upgrade from 4790k

Looking to upgrade from my 4790K. But I'm stuck in a pinch I've Debated 3 different option. 1600x ,1700x and even Skylake Extreme. I'm trying to keep the CPU Under 400 mostly because I need to buy ram and board as well but what do you guys think. I game mostly , Stream and I'm trying to find new uses as well.

Even if you were streaming it'd be fine, the thing is CPU encoding IMO should go the way of the dodo unless you want lossless quality which would be a slideshow on just about any processor. If you're streaming to Twitch and for whatever reason don't want to use the GPU encoder that i7 will handle a poopy 720p 3500Kb stream.
