Hi Friends,

I am planning (Still planning as more research going on) to buy a 1660 Ti or RTX 2060 to play, learn stream and finally stream games. While still thinking which card should I buy to play most of the games at 60FPS (That is what I read till now to be good), I am wondering do I also need a capture card? If yes then which company

I plan to learn streaming by editing & uploading in a Youtube channel as Gaming always has been a passion, but till now only played in game parlors so thought to get a decent one at home. Might buy a PS5 after 6 months but still wondering for PC do I need to buy a capture card?

Saw there is a button of share in PS4 but don't think it would allow me editing, putting logos etc there before I could share

Regards

If you plan to stream and game off the same system, you might be able to get away with the discrete GPU you've listed above but in terms of CPU, you will need at the very least a RyZen 7 processor or an i7 equivalent.

Mind sharing the specs of your current system?

@Lutfij

This is the final list as of now. Any correction/improvement you would like to suggest: something that is not worth buying or the job can be done at a lesser price? It will help me in saving $$ and buying a Gaming Monitor after 6 months :)

CPU>> Ryzen 3800X

Case->> NZXT H 510 Elite RGB Black

Mobo>> Gigabyte X570 Aorus Ultra or Asus TUF Gaming

GPU>> Gigabyte Graphics Card NVIDIA RTX 2060 SUPER WINDFORCE 8GB >> No budget for 3000 series as of now anything less is recommended then can go for that

PSU>> Antec SMPS Antec HCG 850 XTREME 80 Plus Gold Fully Modular

SSD >> Crucial SSD P1 1TB PCI NVME

HDD>> WD 4 TB WD BLUE

RAM>> Gskill 64GB (32x2) DDR4 RIPJAWS 3200 MHZ >> Unable to find 3600 Mhz as of now, though wanted an RGB RAM

AIO>> Deepcool Cooler CASTLE 360EX Black

Yes, as of now the budget is for single PC. Not sure, how the streaming works from 2 PCs. Any link that explains the same?

New to OBS, NVENC and Xsplit, saw these today on Nvidia's site as still need to learn the way to stream

This may help you with the streaming.

I would just go with a 3700x, if not willing to wait for 4th gen. The 3800x is not worth the added cost. Motherboard, I would go with a Gigabyte B550 Elite. You really do not need 64gb of ram either. 32gb should be plenty. With as much saving as you would be getting, you might be able to have enough to get a 3070 at the end of the month, or maybe even a 3080. What is the actual budget anyway?

A 2060s build

I am not sure when the 4th Gen would be available in market after the launch on 8th Oct.

Is it better than X570 Aorus Pro or Ultra? So many products and hence too much confusion. RAM is for virtual machines as this would be the primary purpose of the PC

I will have a look at the other parts
