Hello,

I am recently saving money for an upgrade. I have a system with 8GB of ram, a AMD Ryzen 1600 and a 1050Ti. I am looking forward to upgrade to 16GBs of ram and buy either a new graphics card or CPU. If I go for CPU I will probably go for the Ryzen 2700 since it's on sales and if I go for a graphics card then I would go for the RTX 2060. The main reason I wanted to upgrade my PC is because whenever I record on OBS, it pops an error that the encoding is overloaded. Do you think that upgrading my GPU will fix it or should I upgrade my CPU?

Thank you!
 
Just to make sure, you're getting the most out of your platform and that we're all on the same frequency regarding what you should upgrdae to, it's customary to include your full system's specs. List them like so:
CPU:
Motherboard:
Ram:
SSD/HDD:
GPU:
PSU:
Chassis:
OS:

For added measure, please list the settings for OBS you're currently using.

I think your CPU is plenty fast and can support an RTX 2060 no problem.
Your PSU is large enough to support an RTX 2060.
If I were to choose....I would upgrade the GPU and not the CPU.
....as far as "will it fix the error"....I really don't know.
Thanks for the advice. I am kind of thinking on upgrading the CPU too I just to see more opinions regarding that.
