2 graphics cards or new computer?

How are you trying to stream? with a GTX 1080 Ti you could try NVENC or alternatively use Quick Sync with the i7's iGPU HD 630.

Not sure if this is the right discussion channel or not but this is what has been bugging me.....

i am running a new i7 8700 with 16gb ram and a GTX 1080 ti. I have a monitor that runs 144 htz Love his machine and am trying to get into streaming a little more. I am getting a very bad lag in my stream and have no issues with gameplay. When I am running current games I am still seeing a huge gpu pull. I see very little pull when trying to stream through cpu. I would like to run the system at the highest it can go without over cloacking (fear of over heating). I have either been looking into getting a second tower to help in streaming or

adding a second 1080 ti (be almost the same price for a second comp). I am also concerned about over heating with adding a second gpu through sli. Anytips or suggestions on if adding a second gpu would be good or if I should just go and buy a second computer? Thanks!

The thing about overclocking is that

A) you need to have an overclockable CPU to do it and

B) you're supposed to test the OC so that you don't just fire and forget, but check if your cooler can handle it.

Well, what kind of case real estate is available to you? 


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - MSI GTX 650 - some 7200RPM SATA II thing - Ubuntu (at the moment)

 

Feel free to critique my website. I am but a young entrepreneur.

I have an additional pci slot that would allow for another 1080ti. I am kinda new to the computer thing so just trying not break my new rig. I am just afraid that the space between the two wouldn’t allow for enough cooling?
