Whatever your upload speed and 3700X can handle. You need to do some test streams.

I think your limiting factor here would be storage if you plan to record extended gameplay in 4K, 60 FPS. Also, if the game you are running is very graphics intensive, you might see some stutter here and there.

 

There are some tutorials online teaching you how to record in 1080p, 2K or 4K, just check YouTube.

He isn't streaming, he's recording, so bandwidth won't matter as much, only when uploading.

Just up the settings until you encounter lag, then go 2 steps back.  That CPU should be able to handle 1080p 60fps at like 30Mbps on Medium to Slow profile?  I don't have my webcam with my anymore so I can't test, but I do have a 3700x.  Just play around with the settings until you're happy with what you get.


QUOTE ME IN A REPLY SO I CAN SEE THE NOTIFICATION!

When there is no danger of failure there is no pleasure in success.

I have already view somes tutorials, but everyone has a rtx or an gtx so It's not perfectly the same settings and even for the setting I have, not everyone said the same thing (for exemple: cbr or vbr or cqp? Somes persons say cbr, somes cqp...)

Yeah my bad, should've probably reread the post.

 

In that case, CPU and storage would be the potential limiting factors.

Using VCE instead of x264 is also an option, though far from ideal when quality is the priority.
