Does anyone here stream?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
If so can you tell me a little about your hardware, in-game settings and what FPS you get when you stream?

Also I know streaming is encoding so its all about multithreading so OC'ing could really benefit me in this scenario, are you guys OC'ing to get good FPS while you stream?

I'm using a 3.3 FX-6100, and I'll be playing windowed mode on a 4:3 monitor at 1024X768, and I'm using an ATI Radeon HD 5770

I used to stream, but you had to pay for xsplit.. you can see my hardware in my sig... With my setup I hardly noticed I was streaming really, and even back then I was just using a single 570.

Overclocking definitely helps while streaming. There is a new avermedia hd gamer card out there now that will do all the encoding instead of cpu...so check into that too and it comes with xsplit. I've seen people use that on twitch and the quality is gorgeous.

I stream on Twitch. My system components (well the things that matter for it) are:

2600k @ 4.5
GTX 690
16GB DDR3
Avermedia Gamer HD (the one Descadent mentioned).

I stream 30 fps at 1080 with no issues whatsoever. The Avermedia card was absolutely key to this. I could NOT stream worth a crap before it. The only issue with it is that I'm stuck using 1080 resolution when my monitor has the ability to support 1600. I have to disconnect the avermedia card if I want to use that resolution.

My stream is www.twitch.tv/teknotier

Don't go there if you feel I'm shamelessly trying to plug my channel. It's not like anyone goes there anyways.

Are there any other cards on par with the Avermedia Gamer HD without the whole 'gamer' marketing attached to it? It's a pretty unique piece of kit, but I feel like it's extra $$$ just due to who it's marketed towards.

There may be but I am not certain. You also get an xsplit license for something like 3 months with the Avermedia card.

that card may be the one device in the world with the word gamer on it, that's legit

I just feel like I have this computer that should be more than capable so I don't want to dish out the money for a cap card, I'm still waiting on parts for my new rig LOL.

However the game I'll be primarily streaming in CS Global Offensive so it shouldn't be that bad. I have a friend with a similar processor (it's an intel i5 but w/e close enough) and the same graphics card as me (Radeon HD 5770) and he gets 260-300 fps on max settings 1920x1080, so if I'm streaming at 1024x768 I should be fine on max settings in at least that game.

depending on your net connection you should be able to do true 720p

but cs go doesn't tax anything so it's probably no issue
