i was think of making a new build, i asked before, and almost went with amd, but]im going to go over to intel, and wanted to ask a new question. now when it comes to i5 vs i7 which one would be better for recording game play, and playing the game at max 1080p. im thinking of recording more of my league of legends game play. i plan to build to use one of the cpu on my build on Friday. plus would the antech KUHLER H2O 620 be a good cooler for either of them?
i think even i5 will be enough for the job. lol is not a game that heavy on resources. from my personal experience i got nice performance hit whenever i tried to record a game using my core 2 duo. but with my current setup recording a game does not impact my performance at all. but i think it could be different story if the game able to utilize all your cpu cores properly
it should be fine with quad cores. to maintain high frame rates it depends on how strong your card is. for MP the performance are much more inconsistent because you have to take connection latency or server condition into account as well.
I think the biggest bottleneck when recording gameplay is generally your storage drive (that is usually the case if you have a half decent gaming pc already) so an SSD for recording would give you a big boost and might even let you record more than 30 FPS depending on the actual SSD.
Point being, if you have a CPU and GPU which is capable of playing games well, then an SSD will be complimentary for recording game footage.
