Looks like a pretty solid build for a budget user.

Too bad I didn't know of this build before hand I have a awesome spare rig I would of sold you for less haha.

Honestly go with a bit of a Overclock 4.2 is usually easily attainable then hit me up for 2 more 2gb of ram :P making it a nice clean 8gb, what is your friend using to stream to twitch? OBS? or something else?

How many mods are they running?

Other then possibly a ram bottleneck your buddy should have no issue streaming, if you need help with the settings I can assist later this week when my build is completed :)

and Welcome to RHR, dont forget to join the giveaways

best streaming utility that is free and mod able.

For the ram it might have to wait a week or so as I need to wait for the new kit to show up so I can remove the old kit from my wife's new computer

what timing UPS just called my Ram has cleared and will be in my hands in the next day or 2, whatever you paid for your last kit cut that in half and thats what I want :)
