Depends on the resolution you stream at, with that processor you could have issues with 720p

edit: Didn't watch any of your vods

i use open broadcast software cuz xsplit is shit

and its fine 480p is fine for me as long as its not choppy and doesnt affect my game. (it slows me down. noticeable in some matches)

Processor and upload is what affects your Streaming (mostly, dont have too little RAM and too shitty GPU but that goes for anything)

This should be fairly accurate, can't find the more accurate box graph atm...

Minimum System Requirements for Broadcasting
  • Pentium Core 2 Duo 2Ghz or Higher
  • 4GB RAM
  • 700Kbps upload bandwidth
  • Dedicated video card, 256MB VRAM
  • Windows XP / Vista
  • Mac OS X 10.5 or higher (v20.0.89)
  • Mac OS X 10.6 or higher (v20.2.0)
Recommended System Requirements for Broadcasting
  • Quad Core CPU
  • 4GB RAM
  • 1500Kbps upload bandwidth
  • Dedicated video card, 512MB VRAM
  • Windows Vista / Windows 7
Optimal (for HD Multi-Bitrate Streaming)
  • Quad Core i7-2600 series CPU or better
  • 8GB RAM
  • 5Mbps or better upload bandwidth
  • Dedicated video card, 512MB VRAM
  • Windows Vista / Windows 7
tl;dr:

- Quad core CPU recommended (if you planning on getting one now, go for i5-3570K (~220€, get a cheap ~25€ heatsink and clock it to ~4GHz) This one will last for years to come, dont go for i7 unless you do rendering or shit like that, not worth it for gaming.

Upload is realy important:
-  ~2 is enough but 720p will probably quadruple your latency
- when i did 480p with ~1-1,5 upload with a good PC setup (i5-3570K, GeForce 670, 8GB RAM, win7ult64) My latency went from ~40-~80 and it could feel "unsmooth" at times eventhough FPS was maxed out.
- ~5 is recommended, with a i5 or i7 sandy or ivy bridge this should give you 720p streaming without any issues what so ever. My bro streams arena with an unclocked i5-2500K and ~10 upload at 720p-1080p with zero change in gameplay.


Edit: hope it helped.
