Gaming Computers For Sale

The first thing you’ll need is a streaming computer. Many people think that all you have to do is purchase a laptop and use the internal camera, but streamers know this just doesn’t work! When looking for your gaming PC there are many factors to consider including:


The most important thing about purchasing a processor is making sure it can handle high-demand games such as CSGO or Minecraft. For these types of games, look for an i Series Processor from Intel. GPUs come in two different brands NVIDIA and AMD. If you’re playing MOBA’s like League of Legends or DOTA then go with Nvidia because its cards provide better FPS (Frames per Second) when streaming on Twitch or YouTube Gaming than competitor AMD does. However if you’re playing games like Fallout or Witcher III then an AMD card would be better for you.


A good motherboard should have enough PCIe slots to add on graphics and capture cards, as well as USB ports to attach gaming controllers and other peripherals. It is also important that your motherboard supports the type of processor you choose. Some motherboards come with built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth which can be really helpful if you don’t want any extra cords cluttering up your work space.


When it comes to memory, get as much as you can afford! The more RAM (Random Access Memory) your computer has, the faster it will run allowing for a smooth streaming experience for both you and your viewers.
