    Building Streaming Setup

    Hey, Thanks for the reply, the montor type was mainly picked to keep things within budget and still get two reasonable sized displays, GSync monitors seem to be around 3 or 4 times the price so I wouldn’t be able to afford the two displays required if I went for one of them unfortunately (1 monitor will be for the console and the other for the stream). I think I’d be seriously struggling to build two computers within the budget, would two lower spec PC’s still give me enough performance for decent quality gaming and streaming? I did venture the idea of building it myself (I’m a little out of practice as my last home build was back in 2012), looking at pricing it would give around a £200-£250 saving depending where I purchase components so it might be a worthwhile project in building it myself. thanks for the replies so far
  2. Hey Hope everyone is having a good Monday. I’m looking for some advice in building a full streaming setup from scratch, I’ve got around £3k to spend total and this needs to incorporate everything except a desk and games consoles (I already have a desk / switch / PS4). I’m not entirely sure where to start but thought here would be a great place to ask since here is one of the more helpful communities So far I have the following put together: ESL UK Gaming PC - £1600 (i7 9700k / RTX 2070 8GB / 16GB RAM / 256GB-2TB SSD/HDD) Iiyama 27” Monitor x 2 - £320 Elgato HD60 Pro - £160 Blue Yeti Microphone - £100 Logitech Brio Webcam - £200 Razer Peripherals - £500 (Keyboard / Mouse / Headset) This leaves me a small amount leftover for any other things I might require. Does this seem to be everything covered or have I overlooked something? Would you change anything from my current list (if yes, what and why). Any and all input is welcome Thanks for taking the time to read this and I look forward to your replies. Rookie
  3. Hey, I’m hoping for some advice on building a Mobile/Desktop Gaming Setup based around a laptop with eGPU solution to replace my aging desktop (so I can take advantage of the portability when I need it and then “dock” the laptop when I want to have a little more GPU power). I currently own an Asus Strix GTX 980Ti so I’d be looking to use this within the enclosure and I’ve already got a 34” LG 3440x1440 Ultrawide Monitor to connect everything to (already got Astro a40’s, Razer Naga Epic Chroma, Tartarus v2 and Blackwidow Chroma v2 so no peripherals needed, also a Secret-Labs Omega chair so pretty much just looking at a Laptop and eGPU enclosure). Would anyone be able to recommend a laptop and eGPU enclosure to use for this new setup? I’ve got a budget of between £2000-£3000
