Afaik, streaming games is less cpu intensive than runing a game from your pc.

He isn't streaming games from the web. He is playing a game on his computer, and then streaming it to the internet for other viewers to watch.

I would go for a 2600k and a 680. Only game you might not get over 60fps continuously would be Battlefield 3.

Yeah I'm not sure, but I think a lot of the people in here are confusing his use of the word streaming as streaming video ala Netflix, when what he means is broadcasting his own gameplay via xsplit/twitch. Streaming your own gameplay especially at higher qualities is a very demanding CPU process. Here is a guide on the process by one of the employee's who helps get a lot of people's streams running efficiently, if people are at all interested in learning about it.

Anyways, in regards to the question I would suggest a 2600k, the HT will help with encoding, especially if you want to broadcast at 1080p. I also agree that if you are indeed set on going 2011 for whatever reason, you ought to get a 3930k and not the 3820. If you are gonna invest into the highest end you should commit to it rather than go for the cheap end of the high end when a 2600k will provide you the same kind of results. I think a 2600K and a 680 or 7970 is the perfect combo for your needs, and they will last you a good amount of time. Invest any extra money on your MB and CPU cooling so you can ensure yourself and nice overclock.

doesn't matter though, a 2500k can handle it just fine. well if he can afford a 3930k then why not, i would if i have the money, but the 2500k can and will to the job no problem.

If you want to oc get 2500k/2600k, if not get ivy 3570k/3770k.

THEBENSON is correct. Let me explain you guys my situation so you know where i'm coming at...

I have a play station 3 & Xbox. I have a PC Desktop at the moment its a old AMD 64 dual core system with 4gb ddr2 and two gtx 7800 in sli mode total of 768mb video . My Internet Speed is 117mbps download/15mbps upload. I have a hauppauge HD PVR that is hooked up to my ps3 at the moment. I broadcast at Twitch.tv on my dual core system. I can stream any resolution except the 1024x 720 or 1080P setting resolution. The reason why i can't because when you are broadcasting on 720P resolution on Xsplit software, you need atleast 4 cores. so automatically once I started streaming my CPU cores is getting maxed out pinging at 85-100 % back and foward. Streaming on HD on xsplit requires a lot of encoding just like (THEBENSON has stated above the post..) So then i said okay fine.. my system is like 6 years old ... let me see my older brother laptop. His laptop is a i5 3.4ghz quad core with 4GB DDR3 and 1536 Video Card on board. So i said hmm this should let me broadcast on 720 with this laptop since it has 4 cores but no hyperthreading...... (Laptop connected by Ethernet by the way..) I got the same exact issue all 4 cores started pinging at 80% and above...so then i said hmmm.. my little brother has a i7 820 quad core with hyperthreading 8 threads... and he has 2GB of DDR3 memory and 1GB video card... So i load xsplit on my little brother desktop and I went to task manager on his machine I noticed he has Quadcore with 8 physical cores and i said hmm this has to work!.. So I launched the live broadcast in 720P and its streamed beautifully no problems whatsoever it was so clear and smooth I had tons of friends come by my stream and they witnessed no lag. So i said man i7 820 is like one of the first i7 series and its doing a fantastic job. Now its the year 2012, and I want to build a machine that can last me for a very long time like 2-3 years or even more... so I got the money for the 3930K 6 core / 12 threads, Because I need it for Streaming, Gaming ... and in the future i would like to do video editing and 3D rendering as well. I know that when Video games in a few years would start using 4 cores or more.. I would not have to worry about maximum requirements...but only GPU upgrades...

then 3930k is what you need! thumb.gif

This

and his i7 doesn't have 8 physical cores....just 4 physical cores with 8 logical cores.

Sadly a new system wont help much.stop using xsplit(remove it to prevent data corrution.go get the software ffor streaming from arcsoft (opencl version .make sure your actual computer meet spec .once your ready tweak your setting for 1080i (dont sweat it user will be able to see.)make sure you use window fullscreen or window.dont use fullscreen.arcsoft opencl solution has a 15 day trial so no cost but brain matter and helbo grease.you like the result then any 256 bit gpu system 2012 will pretty much do.you dont like arcsoft after 15 days.uninstall arcsoft .reinstall xsplit.(dont forget to restart at each change)then go ballistic with a bigger computer.3820

For streaming you need a minimum of a 2600k.

Streaming is hard on your CPU not on your GPU. Your GPU renders the frames you see on your monitor, but your CPU renders the frames for streaming. You must have a powerful processor to stream smoothly.

Your internet is good enough to stream at 1080p, so you should have a processor to support this as well. The higher the resolution and framerate, the more CPU power it will require. I stream in 720p at 25fps with my 3930k at 4.5ghz and my stream alone uses ~20% of my CPU. The 3930k is overkill with 6core, 12 threads, but you get the idea. Stick with the x79 chipset and a 4core CPU if you want to save a bit of money.

Also the recommendation of ASRock board is a good one. At their price points, you'd be hard pressed to find a better board.
