Setup for Twitch streaming & recording game footage

    Hi guys. I have recently became interested in streaming. My experience with streaming is only an hour or two through OBS.

    The thing is I would like to get the most out of the equipment I have with an option of small upgrades. Interested to know would my current setup hack recording and streaming live.

    I currently use a PS3 camera and HP desktop with a RX 480 8GB, i7 4th gen, 16GB DDR3 and 512GB SSD. Second monitor is DVI connected. I bought a Logitech c920 camera for €70 but do I really need it? Still have not opened it yet.

    I do also have a second DELL PC that is not in use. Would it make a massive difference to us it for just streaming? The spec is quite low and it only has one ethernet port as does my gaming PC so would have to use WI-FI or get a network card with two ports.

    DELL Optiplex 3020
    Intel i5-4590 3.3GHZ
    4GB DDR3
    Intel HD Graphics 4600

    Would I have to upgrade the DELL to 8GB/16GB ram and a dedicated graphics card?

    What is the most efficient way to record footage and stream live. I know AMD have ReLive but I hear this is quite unstable.
