I have had absolutely NO issues with my current CPU and video card in the 2-3yrs I have had them. Sadly they are just getting very outdated, things are slowing down and there is better hardware out there. Anyway I have a couple questions before I decide to upgrade one or both pieces since I am on a budget. Here is what I currently have.....
EVGA GeForce GTX 550 Ti
AMD Phenom ii x4 965 Black Edition
I'm a gamer and Ive recently wanted to start recording while I play and stream. I'm usually around 80-90 FPS but when I record/stream I drop to 35 or so and start to lag. My internet is fantastic so that isn't the issue. So is this due to my video card, CPU or both being old?
If I need to replace the CPU I want to stick with AMD. The same goes with my video card. I'm sticking with NVIDIA/EVGA. That said these are the two I'm thinking of getting. Would they provide significant results over my current setup?
