That depends on the level of service you are paying for. What download/upload speeds is your ISP supposed to be providing?

Well, that's a bit too tiny for upload speed in my opinion.

Even 1Mbps is low for your upload streaming needs. You will have to crank back your video settings to compensate.

Keep their lingo in mind. Up to 1mbps includes .75 Mbps

What is suggested? I'm looking to try and have a 1080p stream or anything close. Also as far as my computer specs go, are those good for streaming? What should be upgraded.

Your hardware should be fine. To achieve the desired streaming capability, you need to increase your network bandwidth. Go to your ISP's website to see what options are available in your market (and at what cost). I suggest the "Extreme" package.

And Time Warner, I read, has bad costumer service. Go for AT&T with a 12 Mbps network if you need a good speed. I'm using it and it's reliable.
