The CyberPower Pro Streaming I300 is the PC you buy when you finally commit to your new career as a Twitch star. And because Twitch stars can never, ever stop streaming, one PC isn’t enough. You need two: one for gameplay, one for Twitch.
The bottom PC is where you run your game—and run it will, with its 6-core Broadwell-E core i7 6800K, 32GB of RAM, EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 FTW, and a 480GB Intel 540 series SSD. The top PC handles Twitch video streaming with its quad-core Skylake core i7 6700, 8GB of RAM, 128GB Intel SSD, and, of course, an AverMedia Live Gamer HD capture card.
Two PCs in one box may sound insane, but not for Twitch stars. Because the top PC handles all video encoding and streaming, along with your webcam, you never go offline. You can keep streaming even if you need to reboot your gaming PC.
The dynamic duo runs on a single Corsair 850W power supply, so you won't need extra power cables for this dual PC rig. For peripherals, you could set up a KVM toggle or just run two monitors, keyboard, and mice.
Your Twitch dreams start at $3,085 for I300 configurations (ours costs $3,343). If you haven’t monetized enough of your gameplay yet, lower-cost I100 and I200 systems start at $2,239 and $2,725, respectively.
