The stream has been back up and running for a week now, and so far the new computer does alright. Still have some unexpected frame loss issues while broadcasting, but they are for sure not due to computer performance, and are likely due to encoding issues or my stream software having some sort of other problem.
Been a while since I last posted any new content or updates for you all, so I figured a general update post was a good idea. A heads up, this is a pretty long update as I am about two months behind on stuff. Hopefully the potential rewards and deals included make up for it!
