Hello everyone, i am new here so i hope someone can reply to me :>

I am a low budget streamer, and currently i am using a gt 1030 and an i5 650... I love doing livestream on twitch, i stream at 480p but my pc runs so slow, i can't even stream with discord open and my cpu goes at 98% minimum. I am planning to change the cpu, and getting the one on the title (Xeon X3440), small price and a good amount of Cores and Threads. Can someone help me if i am doing a good thing? I first need to change the gpu? thank you so much to everyone ;>

And outside of more cores and threads I won't write this is going to fix it.

Maybe there's something about this PC that can be helped such as single channel RAM, old HDDs etc.

I don't think that streaming uses the GPU more than viewing the image yourself on your own monitor. So if that is satisfactory, upgrading the GPU shouldn't make a difference.

Note that replacing the CPU might mean replacing the motherboard, which might mean replacing the RAM also. In effect, that's most of a new PC.
