My next steps are to upgrade one of the following; my RAM, GPU, or CPU.
I had a prebuilt PC that had some relatively good specs in it with an i5-8400, a GTX 1050ti (HP SKU), and 12GB DDR4-2666 Samsung RAM, a 256GB Samsung M.2HD, 1TB HDD, and a pathetic 300W HP proprietary PSU (Barely enough for my system).
I’ve upgraded to an Asus Prime Z370-A, 750W BQ EVGA PSU, NZXT 500i, and a Corsair H100X AIO Cooler (the jump in cooler comes from me wanting to get an overclockable CPU. Also my heat sync and fan from the other system had a proprietary design so it wouldn’t fit my new motherboard. All remaining parts have been carried over to the new pc.
I do want to upgrade to an i7 K-series CPU, go up to 16GB DDR4 3000-3500 RAM, and probably go to a GTX 1080ti. In the coming months. My budget is fairly small each month so what’s my most efficient plan of attack here based on your opinions? My system already performs well I’d just like to be able to stream with it. Currently if I stream on twitch my feed is “unwatchable” to quote my brother lol.
