CyberPowerPC has partnered with some of the top streamers in the world over the years from Trick2G to Summit1G and for these professional career broadcasters, we've learned exactly what it takes to build high quality gaming and streaming systems. Let CyberPowerPC build you a streaming PC that takes your stream to the next level.
Some things to consider for each component when building a PC for Gaming/Streaming or Video Creation
The Processor is one of the most important parts of any gaming and streaming PC. Most games utilize the GPU more than the CPU. However, in order to stream your favorite graphically intensive games and stream at the same time, the CPU must be powerful enough to run multiple programs simultaneously. A CPU that is Multi-threaded and multi-core are the go to today, the higher the better is best to handle the split workload between the game, streaming and running any other applications like OBS (Open Broadcaster Software).
The graphics card (GPU) is one of the most important components in any PC like the CPU. It’s the source of getting the best possible performance in demanding games. It can be the real difference maker in the amount of FPS you get in your favorite games. The GPU can also help the CPU with encoding so you can broadcast your stream using hardware acceleration.
RAM (memory) can help with running programs simultaneously. So as there isn’t any major requirement other than for a specific game. Having more memory can help make sure you don’t run into any issues when trying to run muitlple programs while the stream is live and gaming. 16GB is becoming the new norm for PC games today so always better to have more for other applications.
Storage space, no matter if you stream or not, is very important because games can quickly take up space. Game files take up more space now then ever before, so having the most storage space gets rid of that headache. If you want to make videos for YouTube, this can also be important to store those raw video files or video editing projects.
Load times can also be a factor when choosing the right drive. An SSD (Solid State Drive) is the best solution to have much faster load times than a standard HDD (Hard Disk Drive). If you plan to stream, game load times is definitely something to think about. It can also help Windows boot faster if the OS is installed on an SSD.
Game and stream simultaneously. Play the graphically intensive games of today with the latest of hardware in both Intel processors and NVIDIA graphics cards.
Duo systems to separate the streaming workload. A desktop PC dedicated for running your games and a laptop dedicated to encoding your stream. Both connected to a video capture card to make this an all around perfect streaming setup.
CyberPowerPC has partnered with some of the world’s top youtubers and we’ve built systems tailored for them that are great for high quality gaming but also for super fast video editing. Even top 100 YouTubers like H2O Delirious rely on CyberPowerPC systems to quickly churn out high quality videos that hit 1 million+ views on a regular basis.
We know what graphic designer and illustrators need when it comes to a powerful graphic design system to run all the latest design applications. Working with highly complex multi-layered effects requires a robust system to handle it all. Let CyberPowerPC build your next hard-core designer workstation.
