Hey Guys,

So i have a £1,200 gaming rig in my bedroom, but the parents just got a fantastic kick ass TV downstairs. I'm not much of a console person and i already have a big steam library, so i was thinking of getting a computer to use as a games console and then eventually (if my understanding is right) use steam in home streaming to stream from my proper gaming rig over my wifi network to the TV PC.

So, i thought about the alienware x51? bought from dell for a warranty, decent specs, small. Thoughts on that assessment?

Also, i already have a spare graphics card:

PowerColor Official Website - Graphics, Cases, Power Supply -- PowerColor HD6770 1GB GDDR5 V2

It seems slightly better than the one that ships in the x51, so if i buy it i might swap it out anyway? Thoughts on that too?

So, keeping in mind i already have a spare graphics card, could i just buy a desktop with good processor, ram and motherboard and install my card? If so, where from?

Cheers guys

From what I understand the whole point of in-home streaming is that the second PC doesn't need to be powerful. So if you have the graphics card you probably already have the most important component as the only challenge for it would be to transmit a picture it receives from the other PC to your TV and send some input signals back. Just put together the rest by buying the remaining components or an used PC with no or weak graphics card. Might be a good idea to try to go for a low-noise machine instead of one with a lot of performance. Mini-atx mainboard with one of those media-pc cases, some 120mm fans a nicely quiet PSU, RAM, a small SSD or quiet HDD and you should have all you need. You could investigate what the minimum requirements for a graphics card would be (probably not that high for 1080p) and get such a card with passive cooling. edit: some people on steam are discussing whether you might be able to use raspberry pi for the streaming. If that will really be possible buying a PC would be complete overkill. At the very least wait for Steam to publish some hardware requirements. A Pi costs 30 bucks, a cheap notebook with many times the performance of the pi may cost 100 bucks.

However, first I'd try to figure out how well this streaming works from some of the beta testers. Using wlan to stream a game may lead to noticeable lag, especially if the TV is far from your gaming PC.

A better solution might be to buy a TV screen that is good for gaming (no input lag, high refresh rate) and connect your gaming PC with HDMI to that. Your parent's TV may be great for watching TV but it may suck for gaming. Besides, sharing a TV can be problematic.

Or buy a PS4 for some of those exclusive titles.

Thanks for the reply ^^ sorry i've been busy with work!

I already have a ps4, fun times all round with ps vita streaming, but my needs have sort of changed a bit.

I hear what you're saying, so much so i imagine something like this would server as a good steam box for pure streaming:

NEW! Minisaur E350 - Custom PC Computers

Then i've noticed i'll be on the road (trains) a lot more, so that means hotel stays too. so how about the pricier version that would kill 2 birds with one stone, replace my old, massive (17") laptop and have a steam box for streaming downstairs.

Alienware 14 gaming laptop?

Alienware 14 Laptop Details | Dell UK

i'd have to save up for a few more months but with the steam streaming feature still in beta, that's not a bad thing!

If you need a new gaming laptop anyway it makes sense. I don't know which gaming laptops are good though, my guess is that Alienware makes you pay extra for their name and design. So you might want to check amazon.co.uk for other brands in the same price range and read a few reviews.

indeed, the only other review that crops up as often as alienware is the razer blade 14. It's always seemed to be a comparison between these two on review sites, others are made by lesser known brands or are merely hyper specced up "normal" laptops, which these is nothing wrong with of course! Just takes longer to sift through them!

I shall keep searching!
