A GPU will give you the best performance boost, but your rendering software has to be optimized to use the GPU; most is. Upgrading the CPU is the best option if your software doesn't support GPU rendering. Upgrading RAM won't give you a noticeable performance if you have 8 or more gigabytes. You might see some slight increase in performance if you have ...

Either buy a dedicated encoder or a better GPU (more or faster CUDA cores) if your effects and encoder support GPU acceleration (in which case the CPU will barely be used.) Upgrade the CPU if you have effects that can't be offloaded to the GPU. Don't bother upgrading memory beyond a base level unless you are hitting issues like not having enough room for ...

Blackmagic Design has solutions for this. One is a live H.264 encoder ( https://www.blackmagicdesign.com/products/h264prorecorder). This is commercial equipment though, so it's going to get expensive fast.

Don't, just don't. File access is your primary problem. You can offset this by using SSDs, but the much more practical solution is to either upgrade to gigabit connectivity between two systems or use high speed external drives to move content captured on one system to the other system and then run the encoding completely distinctly. Capturing footage on a ...

I assume you record video game footage? Recording and rendering on one machine is something I wouldn't recommend with a regular PC if you play modern games that take a lot of your CPU and GPU resources. I usually recommend getting an SSD but in this case it seems you are heavily CPU limited. You could theoretically encode on the GPU but I'm not sure if that ...

The hard drive is usually the biggest factor when working with big footage files. Upgrade his workstation with a reasonably sized SSD, I recommend atleast 500GB to ensure you can work on multiple projects without moving files around. The SSD speed of course is the important factor that would speed up the workflow, so be sure to not buy a cheap but big SSD ...
