  2. think about one of these to take the stress off the system. they have cheaper and more expensive of these but well worth the money if you really want to stream game play video.

    EDIT: then i forgot to add the link :pt1cable:

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16815100098
  3. Anyway i can make this build cheaper and still have around 30-40 fps in WoW?
  4. The best build for gaming and streaming will be based on an AMD 8 core processor

    It will be considerably better.
  7. thanks
  8. is there anyway i can get any cheaper graphics card and still live stream wow?
    i have psu+hardrive+cd rom.
  9. Get an hd7850. It will be just fine for WOW.
  10. could i live stream just WoW?
  11. You could stream anything you want. The 7850 will play most games on high settings.
  12. sorry I'm dumb when it comes to finding a new computer, could the card handle 720p streaming? I'm not sure what it takes to stream 720p =/
    i really appreciate your help :)
  13. Streaming doesn't really have to do with the GPU. This computer will be perfectly fine.
  14. You are smart lol so if i wanted to i could find a graphics card that can run at least "Good" settings in WoW?
    Sorry for the questions.
  15. A gtx 660 will max wow. For less money you could get an hd7850. It will play games at mostly high settings and might max wow.
  16. There's a settings for "Good" its the lower then "High". would there be a down upgrade from hd7850 or something? i really want to start small for live streaming then upgrade when i can

    Streaming in 720 has more to do with your internet than your rig. I mean you do need a good rig but you will never stream on 720p if you have less than 2 mb/s upload speed.
  18. Never knew that, thank you for the information
  19. You could grab a gtx650ti. That's about as low as I would go. should still play on high for WOW. Medium settings in other games.

    If you don't know how to check go to www.speedtest.net. If it's lower than 2 mbps, upgrade your internet package if possible. That's the minimum to stream in 720p I believe. A better gaming rig will obviously increase fps and quality, but won't do anything to help stream in 720p.
