Hey everyone, i dont know if this is the right section to ask in, but my friend wants me to build him a PC. He wants new parts (like ryzen etc) and wants to livestream. I dont know how powerful of a ryzen cpu id be able to get at his budget, so i was wondering if i could get a GTX 970 or 1060 for streaming. I've heard Nvenc 1 isnt good, so would i be better to focus on CPU or GPU for this build?
Thanks!

Any one of those cards could do 1080/60 and even 4k/60 if the cpu can keep up.
Uploading a video through wifi will be a terrible experience unless he has a very good setup, live streaming will certainly be a challenge, do you know how much upload speed he has?
nope. He just moved, so he says its not the greatest
