If your comp struggles on the lowest setting probably not. I find streaming causes a bit of lag even with my highly capable comp.

One of the most important things is your upload speed though. You will need at least 7-800 mb upload speed (which is what I have) or it will look really bad. Like gsl free stream bad.

I'm by no means an expert, just my limited experience.

Past the url for your dashboard into the dashboard link (mine is

Go to
