Although I got an idea what i want maybe there is better to chose. I got a budget of £2000 + can spare a 100 or 200, looking for a rig for gaming and streaming + light editing any ideas? Thanks

Since no mention was made in reference to peripherals, i'm assuming this request is purely for the MAGIC BOX + OS:

NOTES:

  • For 1080p higher refresh rate gaming don't bother with the RTX 2080 SUPER. Grab a RX 5700 XT / RTX 2070 SUPER. Higher end cards are a better fit for higher resolution panels. For 1080p the performance advantage is just not enough to warrant a large spend for a higher end card (in other words: bad value unless user enthusiasm suggests otherwise)

  • The 3900X CPU delivers 12 cores which streamlines gaming and streaming simultaneous workloads without any limitations at the encoding end. The impact on gaming performance is not all that bad with these newer 3rd GEN CPUs. Or you could save money and grab a very capable 3600/3700X and place the encoding workload on the GPUs dedicated hardware encoder. As a result this will have a lesser impact on game performance, is capable of streaming @ 1080p 60fps but can be limiting in scaling higher for finer quality streams (or higher bitrates).

  • If you have a spare machine laying around, you might prefer the option of throwing in a capture card and running 2-build solution to eliminate performance hits on the gaming side. For streaming a decently performing 4-core chip is more than sufficient for excellent quality 1080p 60fps streams.
