    [SOLVED] For streaming, should I pair a ryzen 5 3600 with a GTX 1660 or a ryzen 3 3100 with a GTX 1660 Ti?

    From what I know, streaming is CPU intensive, but I was told by a friend that the 1660 Ti has streaming capabilities built into it. Is it a better idea to go with the 3600 and plain 1660 or 3100 and 1660 Ti? I would swap the 3100 with a 3300x, but who knows when that will be back in stock at MSRP.
