I'd get a CX450 from Corsair.

Also, the motherboard has 4 DIMM slots - I'd ditch the single 8GB stick in favour of a 2x4GB memory kit to run it in dual-channel. You'll still have the ability to upgrade to 16GB down the line without replacing the memory you will already be using.

Cool, thanks

@Hz Eurythmic Have you checked the PSU Tier list? This is a great resource to see the quality of units you are looking at.

 


Main: AMD Ryzen 3 1200, Nvidia GTX 780, 16 GB 2667 MT/s DDR4

Secondary: Intel Xeon X5670, Nvidia GTX 660, 24 GB 1333 MT/s DDR3

Server: Intel Xeon X5670, 60 GB 1333 MT/s DDR3-R

Laptop: Intel Core i5-3320M, 16 GB 1600 MT/s DDR3

Hard to imagine a 3000G would do better than the turing NVENC encoder, what graphics card are you using in your main PC?

 

The load from that PC would be super light, you don't exactly have to go and get a really nice Tier B PSU. Only a dual core and integrated graphics, the cheap stuff will do.


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:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

You still probably want to just upgrade to a GTX 1660 super, it will produce a really high quality stream and you don't have to run a separate PC.

If you are stressing your CPU with RT video encoding a dual core processor just won't be enough. Additionally you would need a capture card bumping up the price of your streaming rig quite a bit. The best and least expensive solution would be to update your current rig with a NVENC capable graphics card.

What graphics card would you prefer then?
