I want to start streaming WOW in 720p, using Xsplit and Dxtory.
Atm Im using a AMD Phenom II x4 955 3.2GHz and WoW is always running smooth on 60fps untill I start capturing with Dxtory, then it goes down to like 40-20.
After reading some articles and looking at prices, I´ve decided on either the Intel i5-2500k or AMD FX-8120. The i5 seems better for general gaming, but I´ve taken the AMD one in consideration because of Dxtorys ability to utilize all threads in the cpu for the video encoding process. And because it will be alot cheaper for me as I already have a mainboard with an AM3+ socket.
So my question is which of the CPUs should I invest in? Does anyone else stream with simular setups, and if so, what is your ingame fps while streaming 720p or higher?
My other specs are 8GB of DDR3 ram, Windows 7 64bit and 100/100mbps internet.
