    Probably fine, though from what I've seen mentioned around on the web, it may pay to get a slightly better CPU where streaming is concerned (being an i5)?

    What res?

    That CPU model, that is correct, right? I ask simply because I've not heard of the 8860 before.

    Thought it was one of the Xeon chips.

    If it is, though far out of my experience, I would think provided it had a decent overclock, then those extra cores could be quite useful for streaming. Rest of the spec is good.

    I think it will be good enough, though I believe I have seen instances where others have suggested i7/8 core processors for streaming, see what other folks on here say first. However, with a healthy overclock and good cooling, I should think that the 8600K will do a pretty good job though.

    I don't stream as yet but I do like to use Adobe software (which involves more cores & threads), and if I was upgrading right now I'd be looking at the 8600K/R5 2600 or above as my choice of CPU.

    you'll be severely limited by that 8600k if you're attempting to stream without the aid of a capture card or a 2nd pc.

    push i7 unless you encode of the GPU - then i5 8600k will be fine .

    want to keep costs down then ryzen 8 core. all depends if you want the best fps for yourself of the reviewer etc

    Intel will always offer the best FPS for the player and its close in terms of FPS for the Viewer . At ultra wide 1440p ryzen 2700x doesn't lose ground to i7/9 for non streaming gaming but with ultra wide 1080p there is a bit of a gap . From 1440p onward Ryzen closes the performance gap and more about GPU power.

    New RTX cards allow for better encoding so that is another route - specially picking up ryzen 2600X or i7 9700k to keep down the costs ! Turing cores have advantage over Pascal with H265 encoding .

    all depends on your budget , would deff push Gigabyte z390 board at £120- is entry board but its a lot better then most z370/390 boards like Asus 370-A.

    Noticed you've gone for corsair parts. Their rep started to lark more on here and has confirmed their RMA policy is to replace units with Brand New rather then attempt to repair it ! RMA team is also UK based (woking if i can recall visiting samsung and seeing corsair office)



    would personally pick ryzen 2700/9700 and sink extra cash into GPU :D
