I'm new to the forum but currently have vMix on my Alienware laptop and typically use this for video calls that include virtual panels. With our current environment the performance has worked out fairly well. We had just a few hiccups along the way and we are interested in building a machine to handle up to 3-4 HD cameras for live panels or events.

I would love to have some of your professional opinions on the specs we have outlined for a new machine to be built. This is what we came up with and would love to hear feedback on if the specs match our goals moving forward. Thanks to all that reply.

@ Freedom1

That computer would pretty much fall in line with the vMix RUBY Reference System and should be fine for the workflow you describe.

You may want to consider Windows 10 Pro instead of the Home edition.

Im thinking about building a livestreaming rig and trying to pick up some small-mid size streaming gigs. My goal here is to build something that can handle video/audio/streaming by myself for smaller shows, and then handle just streaming if I slot into a bigger show. I also want this to be a somewhat smaller package so that I can be fairly mobile. I've been pondering the last few days how I would build something like this, and unfortunately budget is a factor. Ideally this setup will have the ability to do 2 or 3 cameras, 2 or 3 laptops and 3 or 4 microphones.
