Really thanks for read this! Have a great day!


Use the autoconfig feature from OBS for mostly streamoing and apply the recommended settings.
For recording use CPQ and set the CQ level between 23 and 15 (lower = better = more resources needed). Maybe start in 20.
Test. Test again. Test another time.

Do topic 1 of the linked quickstart guide and you have it. This will detect your hardware and run a small benchmark on your machine and adjust settings accordingly.

Everything else is just guesswork from our side, because nobody here knows how your pc and your internet connection behaves with the thing you intend to record or stream. The problem is that you have a AMD GPU, which has a somewhat bad hardware encoder, so you should use the x264 software encoder, which needs much CPU resources, which may or may not require additional configuration not only with OBS but also within your game/the thing you intend to capture to limit the game GPU and CPU demand, so both OBS and the game/the thing you intend to capture get their share of the system resources.

If you had a Nvidia GPU, it would be a very easy answer: just use their Nvenc hardware encoder and that's it, because Nvenc removes almost any CPU and GPU resource demand from OBS, so every resource is available to the game/the thing you intend to capture.
