So is it just me, or is Insurgency: Sandstorm extremely CPU intensive? My rig runs the game flawlessly, but I cannot get a solid stream going from the same PC. I know I know, get a second dedicated streaming PC. Maybe when I have an extra $1,000 laying around that'll be an option. But for now, streaming via x264 or NVENC immediately overloads the encoder, even in menus. I've been playing the WW3 beta and streaming gameplay without any issue whatsoever.
Just wondering if anyone has any suggestions (graphics settings, stream/OBS settings, etc.) to capture a stable stream of this game. Having a blast with is so far and I'm sure my followers would too.
