So I'm trying to stream/record video games and my computer is having trouble keeping up I run a game my recording software and twitch and I experience minor lag in game and even more lag on the stream just wondering if I should upgrade my hardware or my internet is the issue.

-ASUS GeForce GTX1080 8gb ROG STRIX graphics card
-ASUS M5A97 LE R2.0 AM3+ AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
-Kingston HyperX Savage 32GB Kit (4x8GB) 1866MHz DDR3 Non-ECC CL9 DIMM XMP
-AMD FX-8350 FX-Series 8-Core Black Edition Processor

Your hardware will be showing it's age and you'd almost certainly benefit from a CPU/MB/RAM upgrade, but the unknown quantity here is your internet.... What kind of upload speeds do you see?

Yeah, it could be both. An FX-8350 with a meh motherboard is a really poor match for a 1080. Your internet could be a problem, but your CPU hardware definitely is one if you're trying to get the most out of a 1080.
