This is my new rig for streaming to twitch. Made for PlayerUknown's Battleground hence the Name.

So how does that cpu and gpu combo work in pubg? Like what frame rates are you getting? Btw, love the triple monitors! +1
maybe 50fps cause i dont think hes gonna get more with 3gb 1060
Thats what I was thinking. I am trying to build the rest of my system and I need a cpu and gpu, and I wanted to find the best combo for the money to get 60fps.
I get 60fps at all times. I have a few of the settings turned down but thats just for competitive game play. I can push it way beyond that with this setup. Ill try to turn everything on ultra and confirm i can still get 60fps.
Ok nice. Thx for the specs!
Unfortunately youll need a better processor with more cores to stream to twitch. You wont be able to do much with only 4 cores/4threads. Ryzen 5 series with 6 cores or the new i7 8700k would be better. It wont be able to encode video plus process frames of the game your playing. Especially pubg which is highly unoptimized.
As a streamer with an i5 6500 (Not far off from your 6600k @op) I can vouch on this. You'll be lucky to stream in 480p30 and still get decent FPS in PUBG, especially taking that game's optimization into account. I try to stream a game like BF1 on my 6500, and I get frames down to the 30's. Which may not sound bad, but jumping from 60FPS to 30FPS makes the game feel almost unplayable. Turning graphics settings down in-game doesn't help much, as I'm entirely CPU bottlenecked. You should have gone with Ryzen 5.
As for me, I will be upgrading to a Ryzen 7 1700 in the next few months.
But your setup looks absolutely amazing. I aspire to have mine look as good as yours someday. I love the triple monitors, and the desktop background.
As a Pc Enthusiast I agree with this post. My 6600k can only stream; cs:go, fortnite, LoL, and any other less graphically intense games. I have a Zotac 1060 6G overclock 170+ on the core and 250+ on the memory. My 6600k is pushed to 4.4ghz when on water. You need 4+ cores to stream efficiently on high demanding titles or a separate streaming computer. My Ryzen 7 system runs at 3.6ghz with 3336 on my TridentZ RGB memory and it will run anything I can throw at it, mostly because of my 1070. Even though it runs amazing and streams to perfection with zero lag, frame loss, or stutter I would love to upgrade to a i9 7900x as I love the quad channel memory. Also a 1080 ti sli, I mean a man can dream right?
Using the Elgato Capture card in a second pc that is like 4 years old Im able to stream @ 1080p and not lose any FPS on my gaming rig. Looking to upgrade to coffee lake soon and bring all the components in to one machine.
Currently Im using a second PC and with the Elgato card to stream to Twitch. I have my game locked 60fps and it streams in HD. Im looking at upgrading the motherboard and pc to the Coffee Lake once they come in stock. I want to move all my components to one pc and still be able to stream at 1080.
Let me know once you add more pictures - it looks really nice! What FPS are you getting with that? PUBG seems to prefer higher end CPUs like the 6700k.
Upgraded the CPU, MB, GPU, Ram, SSD and AIO Cooler. Streaming in 1080p with out problems now.
why not ultrawide screen? 60hz for gaming is awful...at least get three qx2710 monitors
these monitors are from an old build but they have an almost zero bezel. So using 3 of these looks amazing. The TV above the main monitor is a 4k 42" and has a ps4, Cable box, and soon to be Xbox 1 X mounted behind it. Its also hooked to the pc as well.
