Is I7 2600 good for streaming 720p stream?

I have 1 PC its specs are 

i7 2600

GTX 1050 2GB

8GB ddr3

My Motherboard is bad so ill swap it...

Is my i7 2600 enough for streaming game like overwatch and playing it at the same time?

I dont have a secondary PC and i am on budget...

So will it be able and if it will be whats the preset i want to go with to get best preformance in game and look on the stream?

You'll need to use the NVENC encoder built into your graphics card. Your CPU is too weak to stream and game at the same time. I also wouldn't invest in a replacement motherboard, unless you can get one for like $30.

Actually at a lower bitrate OBS should work fine even with an i7 2600 (but quality wise it will be pretty bad), that said i agree with the rest you should just use shadowplay or at the least the NVENC encoder (this can be a hit or miss from PC to PC, i dunno why but in some cases it doesn't record as fluid as the actual shadow play app), way better quality and doesn't strain your CPU.

You should be more worried about your GPU. Low memory, not enough to stream and game at the same time.
