Building Streaming Setup

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

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.

If you plan on streaming PC games as well as console games, I'd consider a separate PC (doesn't have to be amazing specs) for the capture card that can just capture and stream any device you need to. This way your gaming PC has a light a load as it can, but with a high end CPU it should be fine anyways.

thought about building it yourself or ask a local shop to let it get build out of parts?

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 :)

or go higher spec of course! pc building really isn't that hard if you get a good build guide (not the verge), some good parts and are knowledgeable enough to understand the basics

If you dropped to an i5-9600k (still good CPU, comparable to an i7-8700k) and a 2060 (typically a better value than a 2070 anyways, and as good as a 1070Ti) you could likely fit a Ryzen 3 2200G or Ryzen 5 2400G system (no GPU required since they have decent integrated graphics) and like a 250GB SSD since you won't need much storage on it. You could easily get by on the stock cooler, and you wouldn't need much RAM (I would recommend dual channel of some caliber since Ryzen benefits from high speed dual channel RAM).

 

Those CPUs (especially the 2400G thanks to its multi-threading) should easily handle streaming, added by the fact that its the only thing it would be doing at once. And with a decent aftermarket cooler you could overclock either CPU if it doesn't produce desired results. But stock they should handle 1080p 60fps streaming (take this with a grain of salt, I can't speak to real world results).

 

Edit: Razer peripherals are meh, I'd also recommend dropping to a set of something cheaper that's just as good or better. Logitech, Steel Series; or just get a random (but well rated) mechanical keyboard and a really good mouse + headset.

Here's an example set:

The dedicated streaming box, which the Elgato capture card would go in: https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/Fq62D2

The gaming PC: https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/QhsMHh

 

The total for these two complete systems would be ~$1700 USD. I think you could easily do dual systems, should you want to.

Edit: Updated links to UK.
