Normally people would put the Elgato card into the streaming pc and connect it into the gaming pc

but is it possible to put the Elgato on the gaming pc instead? and use the out hdmi?

no, it will not work like that. Here is a video from Paul's Hardware that explains it. The capture card needs to support Loop Through, which the Elgato's do not.

the point of a capture card is to let another PC handle the encoding of the video stream. Putting a capture card inside the PC producing content is pointless because it can encode what it's displaying on its own. If you want more ports, use those already on a graphics card or buy more graphics cards.

I had this same issue and I am going to be honest I don't remember exactly how I fixed it.  I remember that the passthrough suggested above didn't work for me but there were a number of videos on Youtube suggesting it.  I just tried everything I could find as a solution on Youtube until it worked lol.  Sorry for the vague answer.

 

Edit:  I just remembered that the solution that worked for me involved disabling the Elgato in device manager and re-enabling it several times.  Though in saying that, doing this actually randomly caused my Windows installation to become corrupt and no recovery method would work, making be have to format and completely reinstall.  So have fun with that.
