I am looking into building a computer for streaming games. I am looking for guidance as to what processors and graphics cards I should be considering. More specifically, I have had friends recommend me get an i5 and a GTX 770. My price range is roughly between $1000-$1500 for the whole build, but I am more concerned about what I features I should be looking for to give me preference of certain parts over others.
For streaming, ideally you'd grab the i7.
your friends are right thats a good build to shoot for. Just be careful not to spend more than 100-120 on a mobo and look for the one with the most features.
That build is on the higher end of what you're looking spend, but that's what I will be going with the near future (white/red/black theme adds a little more cost than components are cheaper just as effective).
