from the few times i streamed my games (JC2 and minecraft type games) its very dependent on cpu and gpu. you will need a really strong system to run at high end graphics too if the game it self is on/near max settings for newer games. as the streaming software typically will drain more overall resources then just the game would.

 

so ya upgrade your CPU and get a decent gpu with enough ram to support both might help you with your fps dropage. might also want to tweak your streaming setup. if its running HD 1080p you might have to downgrade that to hd 720p or lower or drop hd and hope for the best if the system cant handle the drain.

I wouldn't mind streaming at 720 or even 480p if needed.

I'd say my total budget is $600. If I NEED to pay an extra $100-200, I will. But I am aiming for $600.

Can you or are you planning to use parts of the other computer? on a $600 budget  pretty much every dollar counts. Do you have an OS you can use?

I'm pretty much getting a new rig if I went through with this. The Os can come later in talk of price, I would like to spend $600 on the computer itself. I just don't know where to start or who to talk to. Been researching all day, but I just don't know enough about this topic and how to do it myself.

Here is a $600 build. Uses stock cpu cooler, you can add an optional one for around $25

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16827151256 dvd drive

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811129186 case. Comes out at $25 with the promo code offered today. No case fans tho, If you have any 120mm or 80mm can add em, or buy two for $3-4 each and add em.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139028 Psu . $39 after mail in rebate.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820220738 RAM

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103996 OS

$605.91 before shipping.

Plus a $15 off promo code with case, $30 in mail in rebates.

 

 

 

After rebates that should be really really close to $600. Best I could do with that budget. It beats the hell out of what you have now.

These prices are good as of this posting. Likely will change soon. Thats the price of the hardware, you will still need to put it together or arrange for it to be built.

What hardware does streaming a game push, anyway?  I'd think it ought to be the hardware usage from playing a game, then add to that copying frames from the video card into system memory, video encoding on the CPU, and Internet upload bandwidth to send it away.

For streaming games, the big thing is the upload speed, not the download speed.  Most residential Internet connections offer vastly more download speed than upload, so you should make sure that your connection is set on upload speed.

Copying frames from the video card into system memory would put some load on the PCI Express bus and system memory, but neither of those should be enough to be a problem.  Even 60 frames per second at 1080p is only about 6% of the bandwidth of a PCI Express 2.0 x16 connection.  You might take a bit of a hit to your frame rates from that, but it shouldn't be anything too major.

The real question is the video encoding, as a video stream will need to be greatly compressed.  Intel's QuickSync is fixed function hardware for video encoding.  AMD Radeon HD 7000 series discrete cards also have fixed function hardware for it, but I don't know if there is any software that can use it yet.  If you can do the video compression by using fixed function hardware like that, then that should greatly reduce the load on your other hardware.  But I don't know if that's possible, and even if it is, I don't know if the software is ready for it yet.

Failing that, the video encoding would likely have to be done on the CPU.  It strikes me as the sort of thing that is likely to trivially scale to arbitrarily many CPU cores.  Then again, it's pretty easy to scale games to many CPU cores, but a lot of games don't.  Regardless, the video encoding will surely be in separate threads from those running the game, which would mean you should be able to make use of a lot of CPU cores.

If that's so, then an AMD FX-6300 with six real cores might be ideal for you.  It also offers FMA support, which Intel CPUs don't yet (Intel will catch up here with Haswell), though I don't know if streaming software is written to exploit that just yet.  I don't know if FMA is useful in video compression, but it strikes me as plausible, considering that it's tremendously useful in graphics computations.  Video cards don't support nearly as many instructions as x86 CPUs, but they've supported FMA for a long time, simply because they'd perform terribly if they didn't.

I don't know what is required, but this guy's streams are pretty good, and here is the vid he did of his setup.
