Streaming Setup

The goal of my streaming setup has always been simplicity.

My gaming and fitness streams are captured through my workstation, which lives in my home gym.

My Workstation

OS: Microsoft Windows 10 Professional 64-bit
CPU: AMD FX-8320E (Amazon.com)
CPU HSF: Noctua NH-D15 (Amazon.com)
GPU: Zotac GTX 750 Zone Edition (Amazon.com)
Capture Card: AVerMedia Live Gamer HD (Amazon.com)
Motherboard: ASRock 970 Extreme4 AM3+ AMD970
Memory: 8GB (4*2GB) G.SKILL Ripjaws DDR3-1600 7-8-7-24 1.60V F3-12800CL7D-4GBRM
Case: ThermalTake Core P3 (Amazon.com)
PSU: Corsair CS450M 450W 80PLUS Gold, Modular (Amazon.com)

Peripherals

Keyboard: Monoprice mechanical keyboard with Cherry MX Black switches

Mouse: Logitech G502 Proteus Core

USB Switch: Plugable USB 2.0 Switch


This switch allows me to move my peripherals between my workstation and another device (read: XIM or my laptop) at the push of a button (Amazon.com). Invaluable.

Microphone: Audio-Technica AT2020 USB


The Audio-Technica AT2020 USB (Discontinued, Amazon.com) is the USB-driven version of the AT2020. It’s a cardioid condenser microphone. Reviews frequently praise it over options like the Blue Yeti (Amazon.com), which comes in at a similar price-point. Audio-Technica has replaced the AT2020 USB with the Audio-Technica AT2020 USB+ (MSRP $149, Amazon.com).
