What budget did you have in mind, and do you need a capture card?

Tristenwalker5 submitter 1 point 2 months ago

Under 1000 and i have the elgato hd 60 on amazon picked out so far.

I'll throw you a list sometime around 4pm (in 4 hours for me)

I would go with this list, has a Ryzen 7 2700, 16GB 3000Mhz RAM, 256GB SSD, 2TB HDD, good case and board, RX 570, 80+ Gold Seasonic PSU, and a good Arctic cooler / fans for the case. I'm assuming you'll be using ethernet / wired for your internet connectivity so I didn't put a WiFi card in, and I've left you $200 dollars of leeway incase you want anything more added in. I didn't know what color scheme you liked so I went with a modest black with white accenting scheme.

He already has a decent gaming PC, so why include a GPU in the streaming PC?

InsertNameHere² 3 Builds 1 point 2 months ago

Ryzen (aside from the APUs) doesn't have integrated graphics, plus gives him an option to CPU / GPU encode if he wants

ImperiousBattlestar 1 point 2 months ago

For dedicated streaming, the CPU will do most of the encoding work. The minimum requirements aren’t too bad, so this should be the best option (4 fast cores will work out better than having multi core CPUs)

https://pcpartpicker.com/list/ZYZGFt you can either downgrade the cpu and use GPU encoding or downgrade GPU and do Cpu encoding to save money. An rx570 4gb would also work.
