    Default pc build for streaming wow gaming and frapsing

    Im looking to stream my live gaming of wow on xsplit, also use fraps and after effects. Would this build do decent?

    Mobo- Asus p8z68-b pro
    Cpu- i7 2600k 3.4ghz sandy bridge
    Gpu- nvidia gtx 560 ti
    Ram- corsair 16gb 1600mhz
    Sdd- intel 60gb for os
    Hdd- 1tb wd 7200rpm

    My connection is 30mbps down - 4up - 7ms
    Should i get a higher speed?

    I think your internet connection looks fine. You have a very low ping and if thats what you can consistently get, stick with it. I get about 50mbps down, 10up and my ping is 27ms.

    I think it should do what you need it to. You may want an aftermarket cpu cooler, but since you are thinking of running the 2600k thats not as necessary as if you were running an i7 3770k.

    I personally am going for the ivy bridge i5 3570k but in your case the hyperthreading of the i7 may be useful here. Can someone else chime in?

    I have the corsair hydro h80.. i was thinking about getting the ivy bridge i7 3770k but i read reviews comparing mine and the ivy bridge. They say its not a huge difference so i passed on that. I was thinking of adding another gtx 560 ti and another ssd.

    Ah gotcha! I didnt realize you already have the i7. Yeah in that case, stick with the 2600k. Its not really worth the money to upgrade to the i7 3770K.

    If your going to add a second GTX 560 I would recommend ditching both and going with a single high end GPU.

    An i7-2600k and i7-3770k is of same price in Newegg or Landmark. I saw a deal with either the i7 sandy bridge and i7 ivy bridge both at $319.99. If you really want to go with the i7 then get the ivy bridge. But personally, I don't really feel the need to get and i7 unless I game/stream my game while using after effects, photshop, while rendering a video. I suggest you get an i5-3570k and get a better GPU.
