-====== How do I set up a Replay Buffer? ====== 
  
-This guide covers how to set up a Replay Buffer using OBS Studio. Other methods such as Shadowplay are acceptable but OBS is generally preferred by the community for its simplicity and ease of use. 
- 
-Note: This guide covers using OBS with NVENC. NVENC is more efficient than recording x264 via CPU. Using X264 puts a heavy strain on the CPU and will affect your game performance. You should have at least an **Nvidia GTX 970 or 1060 6GB** to use NVENC efficiently. AMD cards unfortunately do not have a viable competitor to NVENC at this time.  
- 
-Note2: This guide also assumes you're uploading the replays to Youtube. Please follow [[https://​support.google.com/​youtube/​answer/​1722171?​hl=en|Youtube'​s bitrate guide]] 
- if you intend to record and upload at different resolutions or FPS.  
- 
-  - Download and install OBS from: [[https://​obsproject.com/​download|The OBS Project]] 
-  - Launch OBS 
-  - Press the "​Settings"​ button
