I'm build my gaming PC with I can play and stream at the same time, a budget of $1250
PCPartPicker Part List
6C/12T is usually what you want to look at for streaming.
This is best suggestion yet thank u.
Here's what I put together. I didn't utilize the entire budget because I was unsure if you needed an OS, however, you're more than welcome to upgrade or change things around but this will provide you with a great starting point.
R7 2700. Awesome 8 core / 16 thread CPU which is far more than capable of gaming and streaming. Not the newest generation of Ryzen CPUs but you really can't beat the price.
Quality B450 motherboard with 16GB of RAM.
500GB SSD + 1TB HDD
5700XT. Pretty powerful card for the price. Beats the 2070 SUPER in nearly every category and even competes with the 2080 SUPER in some instances for half the cost.
Meshify C. One of the best premium cases for the price.
650W fully modular and very reliable PSU.
P.P this is great, it more than great it helpful
A second/3rd GEN Ryzen 8-core multi-threaded CPU will do the job very nicely. There's plenty of options to choose from - Ryzen 1700/2700/2700X/3700X (the 3700X being best)
Whether we can secure the best option available depends on what else your $1250 build entails. Does the budget include:
Other peripherals? (keyboard, mouse, etc)
Operating system needed?
also, is that $1250 in USD currency? or CAD/AUS/etc?
If you fancy sticking with the GPU encoder (pref. RTX card) for basic streams, the 8-core CPU option becomes unnecessary.
