I am trying to build a new streaming PC (from scratch) for a long-time streamer with a really old configuration.
Basic needs are:
- Fluid encoding at 1080p 60fps (8+ hours per day!)
- Gaming at 1080p 144hz for any game
I am quite confused with CPU choice. Is more cores a good thing for live video encoding? As money is not an issue, we could very well go for i9-7980xe cpu, but how worth is it? As for GPU, we thought about:
- Titan V
- 2x 1080Ti SLI
- Single 1080Ti
An important concern is that is must be relatively simple to setup (like we don't want any SLI bug or whatever). So I'm thinking single 1080Ti should be enough?
Also, bonus questions if you have time:
What are your thoughts on RAM frequency? What should we aim for ?
What is a good, big, solid, dust proof case on the market?
Thanks a lot in advance for your help
