Gaming WHILE streaming

Hi Guys,

What do you think? Small drive because this will just have Fortnite and discord on the PC for the short term. I'll add a drive and more games around christmas. I want to get this build up and running ASAP while also having the ability to double the ram and upgrade the GPU in the near future. What do you think? Any Tweaks?

I would get 16GB of ram, but other than that it seams like a solid build.

Thanks guys. I'm going to get 8GB's to get it started and get another 8GB around christmas. THis will get me up and running. I'll hold off on streaming until then. You're absolutely right than I need 16 GB's for streaming. Thx!

If you already have the GTX 1060 previously, I'd say this is a good start. Like what minininja0412 said, I would suggest getting 16GB of RAM.

212 evo is kinda old now, cryorig m9 has same performance as per reviews but is smaller cheaper & easier to install .

Folks say you need more ram for streaming but idk anything about that tbh.

I'll go with that cooler. Sounds like a win win and a win to me. Thanks!
