I need help making a recording/streaming/editing/gaming pc build for a budget.

Hello, I need help making a gaming pc for editing/recording/streaming for as low as possible. I need to get atleast 60 fps on most games while recording. I also would like nvidia/intel build because its better for editing. Thanks, Michael

  1. well, intel and budget don't really go together. Besides, the extra cores in AMD cpus are very good for editing, as it doesn't require any complex instructions. And Nvidia is not better for editing. Editing is a CPU task. Also AMD is better for the money. So I recommend grabbing a fx 8320, Asus m5a97, 16gb ddr3-1600 ram, a r9 280x, and a cheap SSD.

    I already have an amd fx 8300 is that good ?, and would an nvidia card work well with an amd cpu or would it be better just to get an new amd gpu ?
  3. then just overclock the 8300 a bit. It's quite capable. The main reason intel is better than AMD for workstations if because of the hyperthreading on i7s. But i7's cost upwards of $300, so I doubt you'll be looking for that.
    An nvidia card would work just fine with an AMD cpu.

    The main reason Intel's are better is not just the hyper threading it's the performance of the processor it's self.
    I would take a i3 processor over a 6 core AMD processor and kick it's but in about everything.
    For recording and editing game play your going to need at least 2 hard drives one to read the game from and another to record to, for a budget PC I never recommend a SSD that is a luxury item and spending money on something that could be put into the actual performance parts of the PC.

    I understand that intel also has better IPC, but in video rendering, all cores are used, therefore the 6 core AMD would definitely beat an i3.

    Ok so what should i get then if i dont need a cpu? What case psu gpu etc
  7. what parts do you already have?

    Fx 8300 and possibly ram but everything else is outdated
  9. I'll toss up a build in about 15 minutes or so. Without a CPU to worry about, I should be able to do 700 (withe Windows, about 625 without), as an estimation. I'll get back you.

    Im nervous about my cpu tho, because ive heard bad things about amd and video editing. Also will whatever build be able to run and record fallout 4 presumably on max settings 60 fps ?
  11. It depends on your GPU, and if your CPU is doing the best it can. I can include my brothers recent build too. It has a 6 core processor for over clocking and a GTX 960. It Is supposed to get about 60 FPS on ultra in GTA V

    That would be appreciated thanks :)

    Here is the build with an 8300 (Assuming you have one)
    NOTES: RAM is bright blue, and kind of ugly, but is ludicrously powerful, at 1866mhz and 8 Cas latency.
    Case cannot accept a DVD drive. If you need one, I suggest the Cooler Master Storm Enforcer, or the one on my personal build, the Corsair 230t Window.
    PSU is tier 3, but is proven to be pretty reliable. If you have an extra 30 bucks, you can upgrade to the 80 dollar, Gold rated, tier one 650W SuperNova series PSUs from EVGA (Just not the NEX series. Those suck)
    I HIGHLY recommend getting two 140 or 120mm intakes for this case. It only has top and back fans
    Unless you have an Ethernet cable, get a WiFi adapter. It isn't on this build.

    Here is my brothers build. Same issue on RAM. But it is pretty good. Just a little loud. If you don't like noise, an NZXT Sentry Fan controller is 27 bucks. It is worth it if you leave it on alot.
