Budget: $1400 Use (Gaming, Rendering, etc): Gaming and Streaming Peripherals required (monitor, keyboard/mouse, etc): None Needed Operating System required: Win 8 or 10.

If it is at all possible try to take this challenge and have all the parts be from the same place? If not thats still ok.

Would both of these run well enough to Game and Stream PC games at the same time?

With the Generation 6 processor, it should run and stream games like a breeze.

I've personally found Seagate just as reliable. I've had 2 Seagate drives in Raid 0 for almost 8 years now.
