Hello people! i was wondering if my computer should be a good enough to stream games while playing?

I've got a i5 2500k OC to 4.3 No problems with cooling etc
And SLI GTX560Ti

Just plain and simple, is my computer good enough to stream with? i've tried and i got bad fps in games when i stream
And i wonder if my cpu is to weak to stream.

Currently on 100MB/S Down and 10MB/S up internet.

Thankful for answers. Cheers

You should be able to stream perfectly fine with your rig AND internet. While streaming movies/games, I don't use more than 4GB of RAM. As long as OP has AT LEAST 4GB, he should be fine.

I've been trying to stream Heroes of newerth at 30 FPS in 720p but i get huge fps drops, but this is with my OLD RAM, Ill post a reply after i've installed the new RAMS to see if it's a big difference.

Anyway thanks for answers and future answers. Im not sure wether it's my settings in Xsplit that's bad or if its my computer.

I still cant seem to get a decent FPS in games while streaming, i dont get why though.. my stream seems to lag and i get FPS Drops ingame, HoN isent a demanding game otherwise, especially with my computer i have 125 FPS constantly, but with Xsplit on it goes all from 50-100 back and forth, but then i suppose it's not my computer thats the problem, odd..

any programs hogging your network?
October 13, 2012 5:40:00 PM

have you run a network test? download speed, upload etc?

I ran a test on the nearest server, it was 87 MB/S down and 9.5MB/S up, so it should be more then enough i suppose. Checked network usage with my motherboards integrated network usage program, nothing special. Using "Spotify" for music thats about it.

I also checked the CPU usage when streaming, and it's high as hell, its all from 65% to 90% which i suppose is really high.. thats why i wonderd if my cpu can handle it,
