More about good recording playing games
  1. for recording extra threads helps as you want to dedicate as many as possible to the capture process. I would try to get an i7, and perhaps a more powerful GPU, as recording does take some wind out of your sails. that motherboard is a great board, but it is rather expensive and overkill for this task. I would aim around the $120 mark.
  2. That should be a good build. Unless you are doing heavish overclocking, the Corsair cooler is a waste of money and could be better spent on a faster GPU.
  3. So what do you think I should get instead
  4. I would aim for a 4790K and a R9 380 or a R9 290 if possible. as wurkfur has said, unless you plan to OC a lot a hyper 212 evo will keep your CPU cool, cost about half as much and still allow some OC. or you can sue the Xeon cheat and get a Xeon 1231V3. it is like a 4790 but with no integrated graphics which you do not need anyway. then you also would not need to worry about OC as it is a locked chip save for base clock boosts.
