Please feel free to leave whatever type of comment you want on my current build or suggestions as to what type of things I might need that would help me stream. Any and all help is deeply appreciated, thank you for your time.
Story: My current PC generally runs games well but I tend to have to turn down shadows and particles to get that 60 FPS in planetside 2, so I know i can't stream with 1080p and get 60 FPS. Games like SMITE and league run well, although I have not tried WoW, which I remember didn't run on high with my old computer.
If possible I'd like to turn my current PC into one that is able to run games like Planetside 2 on ultra and be able to stream on 1080p. I say Planetside 2 because in big battles there is usually tons of stuff being rendered and unrendered, and although it's not graphically intensive, there is a lot of it, and all at once for long periods of time. I know I need atleast 8gb+ of RAM, but before I do that I want to lay down the game plan, if you know what I mean because I don't think throwing RAM at the situation is going to fix it..
Goal: Keep what I can, and upgrade what I must
Budget: ~$1000 ...or..++?
Anyways, here is what I currently have:
System Model: Inspiron 530

CPU Cooler: N\A
Motherboard: Dell 0FM586 | http://www.findlaptopdriver.com/dell-0fm586-specs/
Memory: dont know model but, 4GB DDR2, 2 stick i believe
Video Card: Sapphire 11201-17-20G | https://pcpartpicker.com/part/sapphire-video-card-112011720g
Optical Drive: Do I really need anything major here?
OS: Windows 7 Home Professiona 32-bit (6.1, build 7601), Service pack 1
BIOS: Phoenix - AwardBIOS v6.00PG
Open to questions but I will be back in 12+ Hours from posting time. Once again many many thanks.
