Dual Gaming Laptop stream setup

Jun 12, 2018
Hi, I am interested to set up a dual pc streaming system with 2 gaming laptops but dont want to spend the money before understanding how and it will be likely to function.

First specs: Gaming PC
GTX 1080 8gb vram
16GB Ram

Streaming PC (my old gaming laptop)
GTX570M 1.5gb vram
16GB Ram

Both laptops have one HDMI port, no Displayport. I use a separate 27" screen on the gaming pc.

Question 1. Do I have the ports to run the setup with the screen included?

Question 2. Is my planned streaming pc strong enough to handle being a streaming pc?

I have streamed already with only the gaming pc but would like to save limited CPU power.

Thank you.
