Twitch Streaming PCs & Peripherals: Do You Need the Same Gear As the Pros to Stream?

Obviously, these are just a few of the best Twitch streamers right now. And, their setups are typically the result of sponsors giving them the gear they use. In fact, most of their PCs are overkill for just gaming and even streaming, but since they don’t have to pay for their system’s, they don’t really have to be conscious of whether or not they’re over-spending on certain components in their builds.

If you are looking to get into streaming on Twitch and you want to build a gaming PC that can handle it, definitely check out our high-end build guide. You can easily build a gaming PC that can handle Twitch streaming for as low as $1,000 (and, really, you can get by with a lower budget build than that, too.)

Peripherals like monitors, keyboards, mice, headsets, and a PC gaming chair will cost you more as well, but you can typically get by with budget options in those areas when you’re just starting out.

  2. Hi My son is 17 he is a streamer on twitch and he has an Alienware Aurora r7 it’s anout 8 months old We have tried everything and and he streams his frames drop drastically like it will run fine maybe even a few hours then frames will drop looking for advice / support why this is happening and how come we can’t fix it. Thank you for any input .

    • Frame Drop is usually linked to internet. If he doesn’t already have an Ethernet cable running to his computer, I would highly recommend to get one. Next step would be to check internet speeds and adjust the bitrate accordingly. Hope this helps if you have any others questions I can try to help. 🙂

  3. I know for a fact that neither DrDisrespect or Shroud use a BenQ mouse.
    Dr Disrespect used a Deathadder (now he is testing out a Lancehead), and Shroud uses Logitech G303 / Logitech G Pro.

    I am not sure where you got your information from, but it needs to be corrected.

    • Thanks for letting me know. I copy and pasted the template and then rewrote each one and I must have forgotten to switch Shrouds from what Doc was using.

      As for Doc, I did some searching and the common consensus was that he was using the ZA11. Maybe that info was old—or just wrong. Did he say in a stream he was using the Lancehead?

      In any case, I’ll switch out both of those.

      Thanks,
      Brent
