A stream PC

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So I do a live stream on twitch.tv and I mainly use a laptop to stream which is actually killing the laptop because the load being put on it cpu and so high for so long. I want to build a dedicated stream machine that is under $500. This PC will not be used for gaming for a while but might be later on. I will however be using it everyday for livestreaming on twitch at 5000 Kbps. I came up with a list of parts that I think are a good choice but I want to know if I am crazy for using AMD parts because I havent seen a LTT video involving and AMD cpu in over a year.

 

Parts list:

Case:

Thermaltake Core V21

 

Motherboard:

ASUS M5A78L-M (Only for the on board graphics)

 

CPU:

AMD FX-8350 Black Edition(this is the reason for the on board graphics on motherboard) would a A10 APU work just as well as this or no? is so I could switch this to a m-ITX build and just dedicated it to be a stream machine. and I would make a gaming computer later. 

 

PSU:

Corsair CX500W(refurbished) <- should i go with a smaller watt one until i decide to add a graphics card??

 

RAM:

Team Vulcan 16GB 1600MHz

 

Storage:

I already have a 500GB HHD and 1TB WD Passport

I would get an i7 4790K, and I wouldn't get a Corsair CX power supply because there are others out there that are less likely to spontaneously combust.

 

I'll be back with a sub $500 stream build.

 

Edit: Hm, didn't look at your budget and I forgot that the 4790K is quite a bit more expensive than the 8350. Gimme a minute to concoct something.

 

Edit2: I hate to say it, but I really think it would be wise to save up some money for a bigger and better budget. $500 isn't a lot to work on for this particular task and if you end up gaming and streaming on the same computer in the end you'll absolutely want an i7. The biggest problem with using an AMD build for the long run is that it is quite limited by performance and there isn't a simple upgrade path without switching to a more capable i7 for streaming--at that point you'd probably be spending more money than you'd like in the long run anyways. I'm by no means an expert, but this is what I would do.

That build won't work well the CPU would probably melt the motherboard

This is what I came up with, enough for streaming and editing and can also be used for gaming in the future if you add a gpu.

Are you going to turn this PC into an RTMP server for Streaming?
