Diagram of my dedicated streaming box setup

Continuing the discussion from A dedicated streaming box:

This is how I envision it working. Right now the difference is that Streaming Box is just an Elgato HD60 connect via USB back to the gaming PC.

The funnest!

So you use HDMI on monitors over DVI? Can’t you only get 120hz+ through DVI?


#5

Yes for a few reasons:

  1. I want audio and video over the same cable for easy capture and sync
  2. The maximum I would record at is 60fps and I get an extremely consistent 60fps cap on all games.
  3. I’m perfectly ok with 60fps

I’ve experienced much higher frames when connecting direct video card-display with DVI and it’s just not compelling enough to give up the ease of my setup.

Makes sense for streaming. I remember going from 60hz to 120hz and the smoothness difference was crazy.
