Hi

I was wondering if I could have some help/specs for a PC that ill only use to handle my streams. Prices wise as low as possible. Also I don't mind buying second hand but having an idea on required specs would be a massive help for me.

cheers

What will you be streaming from, what platform(s) are you looking to stream to and what sort of resolution and frequency are you looking to record at?

Sorry what do you mean 'streaming from'?
Twitch is the platform I stream too.
My current Resolution is set too 1280x720.

I currently have the Ryzen 5 5600x. Streaming games like DayZ is fine, but I find when i stream COD warzone or Cold War, its slightly laggy

What software are you using for the stream?

Have you got it set on the CPU or GPU?

I use stream labs OBS.

and I am set up using my CPU as I have a Radeon GPU
Can you post your full specs so we can see what we're working with? You can still do GPU streams with an AMD GPU.

And what monitor are you using, what resolution and refresh rate?

It would make more sense to use the GPU for the stream because you'll need the 6 cores on the processor for those games as they're quite CPU hungry.

This video shows the OBS settings they're using for a 1080p stream on the same GPU and CPU on 1080p graphics settings but at 240Hz, so the hardware grunt required is very similar.

Skip to 9 minutes in for OBS settings, the tweak the graphics settings accordingly.


I'd give that a try first and see how you get on, you shouldn't need a dedicated streamer with that PC.

@SpyderTracks he is using OBS where I use stream labs OBS. Should I change to OBS?
