Stream/game pc cheap

Mar 15, 2018
Hello, I have not kept up in the loop in the past 5 years an don't know whats good and what's bad. I'm currently looking to build a gaming/streaming pc to start streaming when I move back to florida. I have a budget of $600-$700 USD. Trying to keep it cheap for I will need to buy a monitor and the little accessories for it all. My total budget for everything is around $1300-$1500. Just looking for some good insight on what would be in my best interests will take all advice I can get. Thank you.

You are putting aside a full half of your PC build budget for a monitor and accessories? From your 1,300-1,500 you should put about 1,000 towards a computer and the rest for a good monitor/keyboard/mouse setup. Prices for video cards are very high now, but for a "good" gaming system that you will stream from you will need a strong CPU and video card, unless you are going to be using a second system with a capture card to streaming.

Need to know what games and what settings are you looking to get to. A good i5 CPU and a GTX 1060 is OK for things like LOL and CSGO with streaming at high level FPS, GTX 1070 for more demanding games.
