Twitch has exploded in popularity in recent years due to streamers like Ninja, Dr. Disrespect, and Shroud bringing the platform into the spotlight.

But, you don’t have to have millions of followers (or thousands of dollars in equipment) in order to start streaming your own gaming sessions. However, there are some bare necessities that you’ll need in order to provide a quality experience for your viewers.

Not sure where to start? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.

Let’s take a look at everything you need to know about what video game streaming equipment you need.

A High-Quality Microphone
A built-in microphone on a laptop or external webcam isn’t going to cut it if you want to achieve a professional level of quality while streaming. Instead, you’ll need to invest in an actual microphone.

‘High-quality’ here doesn’t have to mean ‘expensive,’ though. There are plenty of affordable microphones suitable for streaming that you can connect to your computer or laptop through its USB port.

If you want top-tier quality, though, you’ll have to take an extra step past a USB connection, as studio-quality microphones require an audio interface in order to use them with your computer.

Webcam
Your viewers not only want to see who you are, but they also want to see how you react to different situations while you play. It’s in your best interest to get an external webcam to record yourself, as built-in cameras are often notorious for their poor quality.

Many webcams on the market are designed with streaming in mind, allowing you to record at 30 FPS in 1080p quality. While you could take things a step further and record in 4K quality, only viewers with a monitor that can display 4K resolution will benefit from this.

So, 1080p will be just fine for your streaming sessions, as all standard displays can handle this quality.
