Question / Help OBS Recording comes out choppy low quality


New Member

I am new to obs and looking to switch over from shadowplay. I've used shadowplay for a long time to record game-play, and it's always come out perfect, but with obs' multiple audio tracks and mic settings, i decided i would switch. However, I have found that the game-play footage comes out choppy and in sometimes poor looking. I've read countless posts of people with similar problems and tried various setting trying to fix it, but I have yet to find a fix. It makes me wonder why shadowplay ran so smoothly. I am very new to all this so forgive me if I don't give all the information I should, but feel free to ask questions and let me know any info I can get you. I will list my specs below. If you think you can help please reach out, I would love to be able to get obs to work, it seems like a fantastic program.

intel i5 8600k 3.6ghz, turbo-ed to 4.3ghz
nvidia gtx 1060 6gb
recording at 60fps 1920-1080

Thank you in advance,
