As title states. I'm wanting to upgrade my PC. Built it last year and it's been solid so far. Since then I've begun streaming games that I play. Where performance starts to dip. To help with the performance dips I'm a bit unsure what I should upgrade to up the performance. Budget wise I'd like to stay around $700~800 or so.
My current specs are:
CPU: 3.20 GHz AMD Phenom II X4 955 (Not OC'd)
GPU: Sapphire Radeon HD 6870 1gb
Mobo: BIOSTAR Group A870U3
PSU: Seventeam V-Force 750w
RAM: G.Skill Sniper 8gb (2 x 4gb)
HD: Western Digital 500gb (x2)
As for games that I play while streaming -
League of Legends
Counter Strike: GO
I don't have any affinity towards Intel or AMD -- same for AMD / Nvidia.
Upload speed isn't much of an issue. The performance dips are in the range of going below 20. I've checked the temps on the GPU/CPU to make sure that wasn't the cause of anything. Under load GPU sits around 50c -- CPU 40~45c
