Dead & OOS.Bummer, was looking to buy one.
Probably need a better 2nd PC for streaming anyway, so just as well this isn't sitting on a shelf unused I suppose.


Anyone have any resources/suggestion on minimum 2nd PC specs?

System requirements:

Windows 10
4th gen Quad-Core i5 or better (There's a feature or 2 that requires an i7)
4 GB RAM
An open PCIe slot on your motherboard.

I actually have one and never used it. If it's not against any rules, I'd be willing to sell it to you.

Yeah the system requirements are IMO higher than I would expect when using a capture card.
The card should be doing all the heavy lifting work.


I don't want to break the bank again, I just built an 1800X/VEGA64 build, and I was hoping to spend no more than maybe $7-800 for a dedicated build specifically for this.


Hence why I'm looking for advice and recommendations on what people have seen.
I couldn't locate any forums run by Elgato looking for such advice, unfortunately. Frown
And most high-profile streamers have had high spec'd builds donated/sponsored, so have to take their builds with a grain of salt for comparisons.


I don't believe it's against the rules as long as we converse privately. Smilie
You could also throw it up in the WTB/WTS, there's gotta be one around here right!?

I'm going to PM you for a price after I check prices on an auction site.

I stream on Twitch on a single PC just fine. 720p/60fps with a 2500 kbps bitrate on an i7-4790k at 4.00 GHz, GTX 1070 and 16GB DDR3. Think I'm only using up 15% of my CPU power according to OBS when I'm streaming. What are the specs you have on your PC currently? Edit: I see you posted your specs. I think you'll be fine with a single PC setup, honestly. I've never had any issues.

R7 1800X & VEGA64.


I stream decently now as well, 720p/60, and 720p/48 for more demanding games.
I can do 1080p/30, but it's not always an enjoyable experience for those watching.


720p/60 quality is decent, but I'd like up my game to 1080p/60 for streaming specifically.
I've been testing settings non-stop since I built this PC and don't think there's anything left for me to try to reach that 1080p/60 output during streams.


So, looking at other options and here I am! Smilie

You could probably find a Haswell build with that budget. I'm not sure how stringent the specs truly are. My Elgato works perfectly fine on a 3rd gen i7.

If you're not streaming, you could probably get by on a "lesser" CPU.

That's kind of what I wanting to try and confirm.


I have a first gen i7-920, was hoping I could get by on that, but haven't found info that makes me feel like I can.
Then the 'some features only available w/i7' language, makes me wonder if my first gen i7 and it's 4 cores would not meet the minimum, since they want 3rd gen


If I could, I'd run with that and upgrade the video card if necessary.
But, if I buy the HD60 Pro now and it doesn't work, I too would just have something sitting on the shelf unused until I invest another grand-ish.
