Question / Help Need help setting up stream and recording settings!


New Member
I'm trying to do both YouTube and twitch so I'm trying if possible to record and stream at the same time. I've been playing on my xbox mostly and streamed using my elgato hd60. Now I'm trying to switch to playing on my PC and streaming at 720p 60fps using nvenc CBR 3500 bitrate at high quality preset and that uses around 10% of my GPU. I record using x264 at 1080p 60fps 40,000 bitrate at the faster preset and am still seeing 100% cpu usage and the video comes out horribly. What settings should I use to stream and record at the same time and game all on the same machine? How much do the different x264 presets look when recording? heres my system specs
CPU: AMD Ryzen 1700 3.0 GHz 8 cores (not overclocked)
CPU Cooler: Wraith Spire
RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB DDR4-3000
Storage: Sandisk 240GB SSD and 1TB Western Digital HDD
GPU: Asus ROG Strix GTX 1070
Capture Card: Elgato HD60
