Hi,

I'm going to build myself a computer.
And I wonder if this specification is enough for streaming games such as:

CS GO
Valorant
Diablo3


Links removed

I am asking for advice if I could improve something for something cheaper.

thank,

Niko

or you links go to a competitor which I don't think you s/b doing... but just by looking quickly, you're spending £180 on a case, £80 on a aio and £350 on a rtx 3050.....you didn't have any storage either

below gives you 3060ti/32gb ram for similar money..put a good quality case on offer, but you can get decent for less too..put the 5600 non x in there as closer to the x price you had

Whilst OCUK have the best GFX card prices right now, they have a stock issue with mobos. Add £25 for the cheapest ready to go b660/610.

This £750 computer is overpowered for playing "CS GO Valorant Diablo 3" @1080p and could manage 2K res if you don't need 144hz.

If I recall rightly, I think Nvidia is the better option for streaming, so I'd lean towards a green team card if streaming is important to you.

I would also make sure you have at least 6core/12threads as you will need at least 2 cores for the stream and enough to run the game without getting frame stuttering. So you will need a i5 or 5600 ryzen or better.

The case suggestions...corsair 4000x and and NZxt H510 Midi...... why ****** airflow cases guys,

There are so many better options for in £50-£100 range
Went with the 4000X as case he was looking at was pretty monolithic (no curves, clean lines etc). I know it has glass front but gap is large down the sides so plenty of air can get in, and as it's a 3060ti and a 5600/5600X, it should cope no problem with thermals. Plenty of threads where people have built with no issues. Ideally, I'd put a 240 aio on top and single fan at back expelling air, or just use air cooler and buy a another triple pack fans, so 2 at top, and 1 at back...but I was keeping his costs comparable to his build(think mine was similar in end including the nvme and going to a 3060ti from a 3050) If temps do rise you can just buy the front airflow panel and swap them over.
Reason I didn't just put the airflow case on, was cost. It's cheaper buying the 'x' version and then paying £4.99 for the airflow panel, than buying the airflow version and spending £50+ on the sp elite fans etc. The 'x' version also has a vertical mounting point for your gpu (from threads I read), which the airflow model doesn't have. I did put you can get plenty of other cases also..it's a starting point, nothing more
Yes, otherwise plenty of cases as @dfour put above, and another 2 below..the phanteks on offer atm as a bundle, buying just the case is £93. the 011 Air mini is new version so can take a atx psu, and comes with fans, though no rgb on them (which think OP wanted by look of his original build)..and for good measure put the 4000d airflow in as down to £80 on offer, but then have cost of fans on top
