I am looking for the best parts I can get for the money for this budget-oriented computer under $1000. I want to be able to have the parts necessary to stream my PC and console games. I know hardware just as the Blackmagic Intensity Shuttle require certain computer parts, so this is what I am looking at. I want to be able to get this computer sometime in September. I would appreciate the help. Thank you!
You also need to check the fine print of your service contract to see if they allow you to run a server on a standard broadband contract. I know you probably don't think of 'streaming' video or audio as running a 'server' but that is exactly what you're doing. You might need a business class broadband plan to allow you to do that.
The actual hardware to compress and push the content up to JustinTV isn't a major consideration. Any fast dual core Sandy Bridge CPU tower will do the job nicely.
$500 if you already have a monitor.
