Question / Help Should you use GPU or CPU to stream?


New Member
Hey Guys! So quick Question! I've been streaming for a while now and sometimes my streams will be looking good and other times it'll be looking choppy and/or laggy...But i don't know what settings would be best to stream? should I use my CPU or GPU to stream?

My PC Specs:
GTX-1060 3GB
16GB Ram
i7-7700K 3.60 GHz

My setting is currently set to using CPU to stream at 720p but will sometimes have frame drops or even having the stream look choppy.

I am running dual monitors, is that putting to much stress on the CPU or GPU?
Thanks in advance!!
