First Build!

 Share

1. Budget & Location

Roughly from $700-$900 USD, could go over but still want it to be reasonable.  

 

2. Aim

The goal of this pc is to use it for streaming. I want it to be a streaming pc strictly. I'm not going to be playing while streaming - I have my console for playing the games. So, I'll be playing the actual game from my console, using the elgato to stream to my pc with OBS open as well. 

 

3. Monitors

Just the 1 monitor. I also have a 2017 Macbook Pro that I could probably just use as a monitor, but nothing else. 

 

4. Peripherals

I would need everything. Maybe not a mouse or a keyboard. 

 

5. Why are you upgrading?

I'm upgrading because my elgato is having a tough time with my Macbook Pro. Even though it says on their website they're compatible with Macs, they don't actually detect the elgato as a capture device. Plus I could tell that if I stuck with my Macbook, it would get super hot and most likely lag. 

 

Also, here are the spec requirements for the Elgato HD60s:

OS: Windows 10 (64-bit)

GPU: Intel HD, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 600 or better

CPU: Intel i5-4xxx quad core or better

 

Any advice is helpful! I am completely new to this pc world because I've only ever played on console. 

 

Thanks!

That Biostar motherboard is really bad though.

1060 is enough to meet the requirements, as it is about 25-30%, faster than a gtx 680.

It would be easier if it was a b450 or x470 series, so that he would not have to update the bios

I love all of the responses, I appreciate them! Now, hear me out...how easy is it to build this stuff? Would a pre-built one do the job or would you suggest me just building it?

Building a PC is as easy as building Lego or building a shelf from ikea, just watch a few Tutorials on  YT  

BUT NOT THE ONE FROM THE VERGE and you will easiely manage to build your pc

OP said the requirements were gtx 600 series or later, don’t know if it means high end or low end 600 series, so i assumed it was high end and based gpu choice off the performance of 680

A prebuilt will do the job, but building it yourself is pretty fun and is cheaper(no need to pay extra for someone to build it for you). It’s a good skill to learn. 

It’s not hard at all, i taught my friend who didn’t know anything about PCs how to build one, by building it with him. Towards the end he managed to install the water cooler on the CPU by himself, as well as plug in the case fans(and route them neatly as well). Just refer to helpful videos on youtube like this: https://youtu.be/IhX0fOUYd8Q

 

Have fun! :)

Easy AF.

 

Just don't buy any of the cheap suggested SSDs, buy a Samsung EVO.
