I want try upgrading my PC to be able handle streaming on twitch, I play a lot open world and shooting games. So, anything from TESO to Titanfall. I would like be able stream and run it, a least where its playable and watchable. Right now I can play most any game, but if I try play most games and stream it at the same time. I lose like 15 fps while streaming and when you only get maybe around 30 FPS (not streaming) , It starts to become unplayable.
So, my options right now. I can throw 400$ right now on upgrades or get a new PC, but it can't go over 800$. So, my question is will 400$ be enough for the newer games to be playable and watchable on my PC or is getting a new PC pretty much the way go? It can only be one or the other though.
AMD Athlon II X2 240
R6750 1GB DDR3
Window 7 64Bit
Elite Power 460W
I know main thing I have to upgrade is CPU which also means that motherboard and window 7 needs to be upgraded with that as well. I was thinking of getting 4th Gen Intel Core i5-4670k 3.4GHz LGA 1150 Processor with MSi Z87-G41PC Mate LGA 1150 ATX Motherboard and I think when I upgrade the motherboard I lose window 7. So I'm looking at window 8. I'm wondering if these upgrades be enough or will it still not matter. I'm not to far away from big PC stores like Micro Center so that is a option. Thanks, for reading and any info you can give help me with my PC build.
