    I don't think an i5 will cut it for 1080p multibitrate streaming
  3. I don't think a GTX 560 will either.

    Hi :)

    Not really, its only slightly better...

    The advice we give customers in my shops about a gaming machine is this...

    Add up the TOTAL cost of everything you are going to buy and then spend another 50% of that total on the card...
