Closed: Computer Parts for Streaming NEED HELP (1 Viewer)


Nov 18, 2014
I was reading up more on reasons why people would be getting shitty images in high motion scenarios on stream and basically what I find is most of it comes down to your processor and of course your internet.

So I just came here to ask about opinions and help find some new parts for a streaming setup using parts I already have with new ones.

I have:

( Basically this computer Gateway FX6860 Desktop Computer - Intel Core i7 i7-2600 3.40 GHz - )

I7 2600 CPU

GTX 560 TI ( Replacing with a GTX 970 )

Chipset Manufacturer Intel Chipset Model H67 Express

WD 2TB hard drive

and a

and yes since the internet is a factor for streaming I have 10 up so im not worried there. [OBS] ( I will simply place it at 3500 Bitrate )

Stream 1920 x 1080 30fps

Prob dropping to 1280 x 720 60fps for clarity and smoothness reasons.

So basically to my point. Im planning on changing some of the hardware in order to get rid of the those hitler pixels so stream comes out cleaner and well...not pixel infested..

So I was thinking of buying a GTX 970 cuz the 560 is obviously ancient and won't hold up to well to new games like The Witcher 3 when that game comes out.

Next thing is the CPU. Im not particularly sure if I need to upgrade this piece as it is a pretty decent Processor right now but I also know that processors are the main thing for streaming so..... I'm not a entirely sure if all my pixel problems come from the CPU.

and finally my motherboard, I'm entirely sure if the H67 intel motherboard can handle a GTX 970, though I would imagine it would be fine but not utilized properly or I'm just talking out my ass.

In short Im thinking of this:

New CPU ( Probably ) Prob I5

Definantly New GPU ( GTX 970 )

and my thoughts on a Motherboard would be a Asus Z97 I guess.

and if so I might as well buy a new case which I already have this one in mind Corsair 500R

take a ram at least 8gb at 1866+ MHz and look at CL(cas latency) low numbers are better and a ssd i prefer samsung evo or pro model they are the best.

I didn't like your cpu was made at 2011 and max frequency has 1066/1333

check this Cyberpower


asus z97 pro gamer
i7 4790K
ssd samsung pro
1866+ Mhz 8GB RAM
and your graphic card you say
[MENTION=44505]NGvisator[/MENTION] I wish you would have posted a little sooner. My bro in law is selling his comp. It would stream like a BAUS! Already have the dual 580's and the 1000w PSU on hold for someone. But he still have the motherboard and CPU available, as well as his 20GB of 1600 (or 1866 I can't remember off the top of my head) RAM. The CPU is a FX 8350 black edition. I can't remember the exact motherboard model, but it's a good one. Food for thought there. I helped him build and upgrade it, and he is a father of 3 and barely played it. He moved to a laptop. It's easier to lug around and he can just plop it on his lap when the kids are napping. Would save you some money in the long run. Let me know if you are interested.

@NGvisator FX 8350 black edition.
Just because it has 8 cores doesn't mean its a streaming monster but it probably beat out your old i7 marginally.

720@60fps is more taxing on the CPU than 1080@30. if you want to minimize pixellation with your stream in general, its all settings with your current CPU, but since you are already getting the 8350, same concept but you might be able to run at a lower x264 preset (which is better!).

recommended for FPS:

res/fps: 720@48fps
bitrate/buffer: 3500
x264preset: fast

recommended for slower games (LOL/DOTA):

bitrate/buffer: 3500
x264preset: medium

If your PC gets laggy, raise your preset to the next faster level. x264 preset is how hard the CPU works to encode the video frame. so slower is better but uses up more CPU.

[MENTION=43769]Belos[/MENTION], High speed ram is useless. It doesn't matter if your ram speed is 20 gb/s or 25 gb/s.

Who has SSDs in a Raid 0000000000000000000000000000000000000000 (40 times RAID 0) ?

Latency doesn't matter, because RAM latency is in microseconds, while your HDD Latency is milliseconds...

People need to know that. I hope you learn sth bro!

Other than that [MENTION=655]Ping[/MENTION] knows his shit.
Definitely need to upgrade that GPU.

CPU should be fine but for a cheap upgrade, buy a better heatsink/fan and overclock.

I have an I5 2500k 3.3ghz OCed to 4.3ghz

But if you're building from scratch, get what you can afford


your processor seems fine to me an i5 would most likely be a down or side grade (and like [MENTION=655]Ping[/MENTION] said even an fx 8 core would be closer to a side grade)
the mobo you picked would not work for your current processor
The GTX970 is a good choice for an upgrade but its over kill an R9 270 is $149 and fine for what you need it for if im not mistaken [MENTION=29007]Uzzy[/MENTION] please correct me if im wrong
Either way you would need a new motherboard to properly utilize your new GPU
Also I agree with Uzzy an SSD is something to look into at least a boot drive and agree with Belos an 840 evo is far less expensive but a pro is amazing (not enough in my eyes to justify twice the price tho)
Finally you forgot a very important piece the PSU those cards take 1-2 six or eight pin supply lines and require a decent amount of juice if that machine was a prebuilt like you linked us it most likely the PSU puts out less than its rated for and even at that lacks the amount of wattage you will require please feel free to mention me in your future post for any questions you might have

Warning don't do the ssd at raid you may damage faster the ssd

Belos, Uzzy was joking ofc but im pretty sure he works with $250,000 servers and knows a bit more about proper raids then you......
