I think I am going to stick with the build but maybe get the 11gb graphics card instead, the Ti version. As you said, my computer is already good and I will be seeing a minimal performance upgrade, so maybe the Ti will help even more? If I stream and have my game on high settings, I lag on the stream playback. So I have to turn my in game settings down and the lag on the stream goes away. Twitch says this is caused by in game settings being too high and taking up too many graphics resources.

 Before jumping into a brand new GPU, Please watch review/demos from this guy, I encourage you to look at the links, as, if your main concern is streaming, it is very informative, > https://blunty.tv/20...-for-streaming/

 

Here's a review/performance , > https://www.trustedr...dia-rtx-2080-ti

I'm not too sure how to interpret that video. The only thing I seem to get from it, is the 2080 is not better for streaming. I stream @ 6k mbps as mentioned in that video. if I play my games on max settings, the stream drops frames (lags) and falls way behind the normal 5-10 seconds delay. It ends up being 45 seconds to over 1 minute delayed. But if I lower my in game graphics, the stream no longer drops frames. Even on games that are less graphics intensive, like Grim Dawn or League of Legends, if I have them on max, the stream playback lags. By lag, I mean it skips, chops, stutters, freezes for a few seconds, etc. and that is all that my viewers see and that is not good business for me. The game doesn't lag for me playing it, but the live stream does so I don't know it's lagging unless I am looking at my stream.

 

Imagine if you can, without any streaming being involved, trying to play a game on max settings that requires a GTX 1080 to do so, but you're trying to do it with a MSI Radeon Hawk 3770 with 1gb that came out in 2005 (I don't know if a 3770 exists but I am sure you get the idea.) That is what the viewers see.
 

I do use the graphics card encoding as mentioned as well. I haven't been able to figure out how to use the CPU encoding, but I could just simply be missing it.

I wish there is a way that I can show you this. I can make a video of it, but how could I send it to you? Maybe you can view my stream?

I linked the first video to point out, that for streaming, there is no benefit upgrading to an RTX.  But from other reviews it gives better gaming performance.

I would hate for you to spend $1200 and find no significant performance gain.

The second video, > https://www.youtube....h?v=yfPm5KbdAok  Seems to still recommended CPU for streaming only, mind you, this was before OBS's latest update.   As suggested, set OBS to record locally using your encoder.

I game but don't stream, so you will know more about that than me.   Have you optimized your setting? > https://www.geforce....adcasting-guide

OBS Update, > https://obsproject.com/download

I think that your upgrade should be without a new GPU, use your existing GPU, configure and test; if then not satisfactory, upgrade the GPU.

I don't record my stream, only upload to twitch for live viewing. Twitch itself records my streams and saves them to their server, so nothing is recorded or saved locally on my system.

 

I will look at the video for youtube later today, since I can't while I am on a work computer. :D

 

As far as OBS goes, it auto updates every time I open it, so it's always up to date.

OK, watching the youtube video, I am using the cpu encoder, always have I guess? In the image below, if you go to the part of the video shown in the image, and play it, combine both side by side videos and that's what I see when watching my stream. My bitrate is at 6k mbps.

On my performance monitor, I am using about 60-64% cpu on my highest settings. On the stream labs obs performance monitor it shows 27-30% and lags frames as they call it.

Lowering the settings to almost everything off or lowest setting, my performance monitor CPU usage drops to 23-58% and the stream labs obs performance monitor shows 20-23% but no lag.
