     Do I have to get a dedicated streaming video card (capture card) to sit alongside my 980? If so, which do you recommend?
    -No, you currently have three options.  First, you could have your 2500k do all of the encoding.  This will probably have the biggest impact on performance but that depends on how much CPU the game you're playing uses.  Your second option is to use realtime Quicksync encoding.  There's hardly a performance hit for doing this, but it the quality is limited (it will still look clear and fine though).  Your third option will be to utilize the built-in encoder on your GTX 980.  I can't speak for quality and performance since I don't have an Nvidia card, but I'd imagine it's similar to Quicksync maybe a little better.
    How do folks get mods that they can trust?-I think they just mod regulars who aren't jackasses.  Regular viewers mean they are committed.
    Best way to see chat when streaming? I have a 2nd laptop I guess I could use but I see some folks have the chat in the game window too
    -I think the chat over the game window is just for viewers.  The streamers are viewing chat from another computer or a second monitor.  But don't quote me on this.  There might be an application that will provide an overlay while you play your game, but I don't know what that is.
    My monitor is 1080p and I'd game in that. Should I use 30FPS or FPS streaming setting?
    -Depends on what your streaming.  You have the option to downscale the resolution to twitch or youtube so you aren't stuck streaming 1080p.

    Ya know, I read the OP wrong.  I thought expansion was a big issue.  Dur.  That changes some of the things I picked.

    We may not like to design, but the site does seem faster and it also seems to put less of a rendering load on my processor.

    There isn't overkill in a single card; there's only how much you're willing to spend.

    You should get a 4GB card, otherwise games will behave as if you have a 2GB card.

    Trying to browse topics on the Default or Niggles theme is like trying to find Waldo in black and white.  The stripes are so ugly and contrasting it's distracting.

    Niggles and Default themes have too muchempty space.  Line spacing increased; I don't like it.
    The white/grey stripes when browsing topics is distracting as hell.
    Animate theme has best overall aesthetics, but I doubt I could look at white on dark grey all day.
