Your upload speed may be hindering your stream quality. Chances are it will either have a massive effect on your stream or you'll be playing the game with a large delay. It depends on the streaming service.
Also, nice server location.
Your graphics settings and your streaming quality are 2 different things.
The streaming process is broken down to 2 pieces, how good quality you can stream without let it drop your game-play and how good quality you can send with your bandwidth. If you open a video editing program and play around with the codecs for compression you'll see the Bitrate somewhere, basically the higher the nitrate the better the quality but the nitrate also translates in bigger file sizes.
With your upload speed you will have in-game MS problems and constant disruptions of your live stream and really low quality video regardless of your actual computer, that by your uploading speed alone. The fact that you have a 3.6ghz processor and can run wow at 120 frames on ultra is a good sign that the streaming won't be heavy on your system although RAM plays a basic role for streaming but it also depends on the streaming service you are going to use.
If you want to stream on a high quality you have to get more upload bandwidth, swap to VDsl if possible, it offers higher upload speeds.
