HTPC spec questions.

I am planning an HTPC for the sole purpose of Steam Streaming Cyberpunk 2077 to my LG C9 65" TV from my main rig.

It's my first HTPC, so I have a couple of questions:

1) How much processor horsepower do I need. (I am thinking a AMD 3200G - too much?)

2) Will 1gb Ethernet have enough bandwidth for 4k @ 60 Hz / 1440p 120Hz? (My main rig has a 5gb Ethernet port - so I could upgrade the HTPC to match if required)


I have an old PC with a 4770K in it. If I get a 3xxx series GPU with an HDMI 2.1 output on it - would that be a better option?

Get an nvidia shield pro, then use gamestream if your main rig has a compatible gpu. Also can use the shield to stream movies from your main rig to your tv.
