    @tadka if you install a second drive (ssd) to use a  ‘scratch disk’ it will help alot.

    My lad does Yt vids, I spit his games on to a 240gb ssd, the operating system to a 120gb ssd (iirc) and a chucked on my ancient 30gb ssd to use to record to.

    His system is old i5 750, with a gtx970, once the ‘scratch dust went in it really upped the quality he could capture. Though iirc he still captures at 720p but at a higher bit rate.

    I can’t really the capture software we decided on, it’s japanese, some don’t like it but it worked best for us. He uses Sony vagus to edit. As his school gives out licences, and teaches that. No way I’d by it when Blender is free.

    Dxtory is the recording sw he uses. Iirc it cost 25£ ish, it had to be purchased in ¥ at the time. Which was about 5 years ago.

    My lad renders on a second pc with a gtx 460 in it as 1. The 970 wasn’t supported, (probably is now) 2. His pc could not handle gaming, capture AND rendering. 3 dad is to tight to buy him a new pc. Though I think next year I’ll update his rig. It’s worked hard for a long long though like the i7920 I use to game, it just keeps working and well. I’ve been saying for 5 plus years, it’s probably going this year.

    CPU intensive games like city builders (my type of game) does start to slow once pops get so big. Other than that I don’t have many games that suffer. Both project racing and gta 5 still run 1080p at over 60fps. Which I’m more than happy with.

    If your struggling, try a third old ssd to record onto.

    All the above specs look good so can I just recomend a supplier.

    I use the custom config option on the Palicomp website and most of the time I find them the cheapest for a prebuilt PC.

    Their after sales support is good too.
