Hey guys! I'm currently streaming League of Legends, and a bit of Diablo. I'm using a GTX 560Ti graphics, 13GB Ram, and currently an i5 Processor. After a quick test, loading both OBS and Diablo, my task manager showed that my CPU usage was above 90%. Correct me if I'm wrong, but any FPS drops I get would be because of the processor, not the graphics card.

If it is the Processor that's slowing me down, I want to get some advice on what to get. Ideally I'd like to stream league high quality with no problems. I don't need to optimize it for Diablo, I don't mind playing lower settings on it. I'm fine with buying something high quality, but don't want to get the most expensive processor out there if I don't have to. I don't know much about processors, so far all I'm able to find is that the i7 4770k is a good one. If a less expensive one will work for me if prefer that route though.

Please let me know what you think!
