I will be using my gaming laptop to stream and use an elgato capture device to get footage over. Wondering if this will be good for gaming 1920x1080 60fps+? I already have the GPU.

this is amazing for 1080p gaming. make sure your laptop can handle streaming though.

It can handle some medium to light gaming so it should do just fine

You can scale it down to a R5 2600 and see similar performance, but will save a fair bit of money. You also will want an SSD and step down to a standard HDD. A hybrid drive is not worth it. If you are going to be storing footage for later use you will want a large HDD and maybe an NVMe drive for scratch if you plan to do editing on the videos. Other than that it should be fine, so long as your laptop can handle the stream you are trying to push.

I will definitely have the budget to get an ssd. I already have an m.2 drive that I will be transferring from my laptop to my pc and using it as a boot drive, I also have hard drives that I will be using to store footage and may be using the hybrid drive to store games so I can get a slight boost in loading times and what not.

What is your graphics card. PSU is overkill. You should get 3TB (60 dollars) then add a little ssd to it instead of the 2TB.

I have the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1070 Windforce OC and I am looking at it right now and I think I will do a 3tb HDD and a 240gb Kingston SSD

What do you think of this?
