I5 or 960 for streaming

Recommended Posts

Hey! 

I've been using emby server in my linux server a while now. The streaming works well but in some movies the buffering takes quite long and I've thought that should I use my CPU or GPU to encode/decode the stream. I'm not going to spend a lot of money in this linux setup so I just want other's opinions. I've read same kind of articles here but I haven't got any ideas what to do in this case.

CPU: Intel Core i5-3450 3.10GHz

GPU: MSI GTX 960 gaming 4GB

in a windows environment this hardware is fine for transcoding everything but not 4k.

I cannot tell on linux specific details, but the hardware should be fine.
