I'm looking to start a YouTube show, doing videos in the style of gamegrumps and pewdiepie etc.
It seems like there's tons of money in it and I'm just wondering...

What do I need? Physically?
I already have a top of the line gaming rig that cost me about $4,000.

What do I need beyond that?

Do I NEED a capture card?

Obs is a broadcasting software which you can use to record your desktop or games at full screen to stream to twitch or YouTube. You don't require a capture card to use it but just requires a bit of settings up first. You can download the software here, https://obsproject.com

Quality microphone and camera, good skills for capturing your audience, you do not need a capture card as such for broadcasting at the beginning I would advise using obs (open broadcasting software) which you can find tutorials on YouTube to set it up. This software should enable you to start out and if you need to move onto better software in the future you can do so.

I've already got a quality microphone, I don't need a camera as I won't be showing my face, just using my voice. I figure I'll start out with let's plays first. What's OBS? Can you give me more details on what it is?
