Hello,

currently im using my computer only to stream to Twitch over my PS4. When I play and stream at the same time on my computer its just lagging. I need a CPU that can handle streaming and playing at the same time with minor performance issues.

A 2 PC System is currently not an option for me because i dont got the room for it atm. I wish to play in FullHD/60 FPS thats enough for me.

So I guess for upgrading my PC a new CPU+Mainboard+RAM+SSD+Win 10 is needed. My Budget is likely 1400€. I only want the best Price/Value option thats enough for the moment.

I hope you guys can help me with that. Thats my current Sys:

Win 7
MB: ASUS P9X79 Pro
CPU: I7-3820
CPU Cooler: Bequiet Dark Rock
Graphic: ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1070 AMP! Extreme Edition 8GB GDDR5
RAM: 16 GB Corsair DDR3 1333C9
Energy : BeQuiet Pure Power 730W
SSD: 64GB
HDD: 2x =1,5 TB

Thanks in Advance!

Ryzen based builds are affordable and great for streaming due to their large core/thread numbers.

You could do something like this and bring over you HDD drives, video card, power supply from the old system. If you found an AM4 bracket you may even be able to re use your old CPU cooler as well.
 


8700k will have better FPS gaming while streaming.

Coffee Lake will of course outperform any Ryzen in gaming or most core-for-core comparisons. This build is designed to be the value build. More cores and threads are good for streaming though at a lower cost than an Intel build. AM4 will be around until at least Ryzen 3rd gen, the next upgrade could be as easy as adding a new CPU.
