Dual PC Streaming

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey,

I got 2 machines, and I want to play games online, and use the processing power of the 2nd to stream on twitch.tv.
I will use XSplit, unless someone suggests something better.

I've searched online, and most solutions require a streaming card... Which I don't have and don't really believe I need.
While streaming with my gaming pc it does bring down the performance, so I need another machine to do the heavy work.

Gaming PC (Laptop):
i7 3610QM 2.3GHz (3.3GHz)
HD 7970M
8GB 1600Hz Kingston HyperX
180GB SSD, 500GB Hybrid

2nd PC (Streaming):
i3 540 OC at 4.46GHz - Very stable
HD 4650 1GB (Soon to replace with GTX 280 1GB)
2x2GB at 1552MHz
500GB HDD


I don't really know where to start so any help will be appreciated.

Honestly, the only solution i can think of is a streaming card. Sadly.

Yeah, you need to find a way to capture video and sound from the first PC to the second and I only know of a capture card doing that.

Could you recommend a cheap and good (so cliche) capture card? Cheap meaning I wouldn't want to spend more than £20 at max.
