Best OBS settings for my specs

Nankoto Feb 25, 2013 09:31AM PST

I would love to start streaming more as it seems like a fun thing to do so far. Was wondering if anyone could give me some help with setting up OBS to best suit my specs.


Specs:
CPU: AMD Athlon II x4 640 Processor 3.00GHz
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit
Graphics Card: AMD Radeon 6770 HD
Speedtest: http://www.speedtest.net/result/2533821936.png


Any help would be appreciated :)

Nankoto,

Try this out:

Resolution: 850x480 (480p)
Quality Balance: 10 (7-9 if a decently high motion game, 10 if low motion)
Bitrate: 1200 [depends on if you can actually push this, you need xsplit to test that]
Buffer: 1200 [depends on if you can actually push this, you need xsplit to test that]
Advanced Video - x264 Preset: Ultrafast

Your main bottleneck is your CPU, and what settings you have for your games at (and really, what games you are playing).

Best Regards,
Xangold
