    First off wheres the 1080 ti? 😛 second off what bitrate do you edit and stream at??? cause YouTube likes 12000 but it isn’t very clean…

      My 980ti Hybrid still plays things very well. No need to upgrade if my current setup gets the job done no problem. Only thing is when I play a game like ARK which has been plagued by bad optimization since it first came out in early access. I may upgrade to the 1180ti if that’ll be a thing. Maybe by then, some of the games I’m playing will demand more power and justify upgrading.

      My Scorched Earth stream was like 16,000kbps for 1080p60, but YouTube recommends 4,500-9,000kbps for 1080p60 whoops. My recordings are basically uncompressed, but I render at 24,000 – 32,000kbps for my 1440p60 videos.

    How much did your gaming cmputer cost?

      You can check the pcpartpicker link to see how much the build costs (though I think that shows it with current prices, but it’s still pretty close)

    What OS is your PC running on? Mine is on Windows 10 edition home!

    • Waffle - July 1, 2016, 2:39 pm

      Windows 8.1, only because I got it for free for buying Microsoft Office for being a student.

    Do you use any type of head-set? I’ve been looking for one but don’t know what to get, thinking baout a Logitech headset but im not sure.Thanks in advance! Btw GREAT youtube videos!!

    • Waffle - April 10, 2015, 4:43 am

      I don’t use a headset, but I do use headphones. I use Audio Technica ATH-M50 headphones, and they’re fantastic. A bit on the expensive side, $150, but well worth the money if you’re looking for some really good studio monitor headphones. Also, great to hear you enjoy!
