Hi all,

I've purchased my Desktop from CyberPower about 7 months ago and I really enjoy it. 
I started to play Forza Horizon 4 and my pc runs it smooth on high settings.
I had issues when I started to record my gameplay, quality and fps drop in game and lower quality video.

Based on my specs, what would I need to upgrade to run both smoothly.

GPU: Radeon RX 580 series VRAM4096 MB / GDDR5 1750 MHz
CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 2600 Six-Core Processor

I have an SSD and a HDD, does it matter where the game is installed and/or where the video is recorded?

I haven't overclocked this setup, would that be enough to help?

Any info is appreciated.

Thank you :)

What video capture card did you buy? Or are you just using software? Software will strain the CPU and cause lower frame rates, worse on AMD cores.  So look into that 1st then a cpu upgrade and memory 2nd.
