Heya guys and gals I was looking to build myself a dedicated PC for streaming which would allows me to stream in HD quality without dropping frames. I have 100 mb/s down and 5 mb up so internet isn't an issue for me, it's just a case of getting the right PC for the job. I need everything ranging from RAM to CPU to PSU or even a great looking case or monitor if you have any recommendations! The only two things that I would possibly have is 8mb of RAM from my old case and a 1TB HDD, I'd also be interested in an SSD if it can increase loading speeds whilst streaming.
I also been I want your advice on some things regarding creating a sound system.
I was using the Steelseries Siberia V2 Diablo Headset, however I found that due te faults with the wiring the microphone broke within 6 months and this has prompted this change. What I am looking for is a pair of headphones and a good quality desktop micorphone and in addition to this I would like advice on whether it is worth getting a sound card. By this I mean how far does it improve sound quality and will I see the difference when I am streaming?
