(Moved to tech support since it fits there)

8GB should be fine, streaming depends on what kind are you doing. Are you doing pc games, going from a capture card?

Ok, looking at the specs, its got a decent bit of oomph. You should be able to run most games with lower settings. However with streaming pc games, you may take a bit of a hit since there is some overhead created when capturing and sending video for streaming.

Games like watch dogs are going to be a bit more demanding to run on high settings, so higher end hardware (like a more powerful GPU) would be needed. Skyrim is actually quite easy to get to high settings on most hardware (granted im not so sure for the comp you listed, since it does use AMD's integrated graphics solution)

With the minimum specs listed on their pages or on affiliate websites, at the bare minimum, this should easily run it. I would expect medium-ish for 1080p and a good frame rate.

However, if you are one for building a computer, i do also suggest looking at Hardware revolutions suggestions for building at different price ranges: http://www.hardware-revolution.com/best ... arch-2014/ http://www.hardware-revolution.com/best ... arch-2014/

Now I think some of the hit you'll get while streaming is mostly a combination of cpu and gpu related things. The processor on the comp you listed should do just fine, however since the gpu is integrated, you may see some loss in upload quality and game performance. If you go with a dedicated GPU (i.e. AMD Radeon R9 270 or an Nvidia GTX 760 < just examples of dedicated cards), you would get better gaming performance and less overhead while streaming. Of course having a good internet connection is also necessary for streaming (at least within the needs for streaming depending on what app you are using)
