x264 vs NVENC

CPU encoding is slower (depending on configured bitrate/speed preset) but maintains higher image quality and the 3700X has plenty of compute performance in the tank to keep this option alive.

NVENC promises lesser compromise in gaming performance (should games benefit from 8 cores) but does demand more bitrate to match the software encoders image quality. For basic quality streams, this option is simply good enough - for higher quality output / higher resolutions the image quality or performance is undesirable.

Bottom line: Both have their PROS and CONS, hence its great you have both options available at your finger tips. This puts you in the driving seat to configure which is best with your preferred encoding configurations on the go.

NVENC encoding works very well without an additional expense, I streamed with it yesterday without a hitch

No need for a capture card unless this is your streaming PC OR ARE STREAMING FROM A CONSOLE. :D
