I want to upgrade from playing on a laptop to playing + streaming on a tower pc.
Do you have any recommendations or things I have to look out for?
I already know that single core performance is the most important for AOE. For streaming the CPU is also very important, so I was wondering if I even need a grafics card.
Also would it be possible to continue playing on my laptop and get a capture card + PC for only streaming?
All help is appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Yes thats possible. Then you only need a pc with an OK ish cpu to stream the data to the web.
You dont need overly high stuff for that. You can stream and play fine with a 4 year old CPU of your choice. Having atleast 8 cores at 3.5 ghz as reference.
that way you can stream at 1080P.
thank you very much!
do you by any chance have experience with Dual PC setup with NDI. So no capture card, but streaming your screen via a network protocol. It would be even cheaper as capture card is around 100€ and
i would probably suggest just using OBS or something similar, with a good enough CPU ala r5 5600x you should be more than capable streaming using that.
capture cards are IMO kind of a waste, you can get more than acceptable recording and streaming with a good GPU or CPU.
