I have two PCs, one with a sound card and another with a capture card.

I want to swap these two items, as the rig currently holding the capture card is more powerful and I want to use that to play the games while using the other to record/stream using the capture card.

I am just wondering if the lack of a sound card in the dedicated capture pc would affect the sound of the recordings or if that would be drawn from the dedicated play pc with the newly-installed sound card.

Also, my capture rig is aging a bit, but it has two GTX 970s and an i5-4460, but only 16GB of RAM. Is this enough to record/stream 4k/60fps? It won't be playing the games, just receiving the signal and possibly streaming it. Would that be enough to get good quality/performance on my recordings?
