Streaming Hardware Question

I am wondering if anyone can help me understand what can fix this problem.  The embedded picture is not my actual machine, but rather something I saw online.  On my machine,
 I see a lot of input drops and I am wondering what is causing that.  Is it that my computer processor (Quad Core Duo), a problem with my capture card (BlackMagic), a problem with the program (Adobe Live Media Encoder) or a problem with my Internet (50mbps)?  Screen capture

How much RAM does your computer have?
What other applications are running when your camera feed is dropping?
What execution priority is your capture application running at?

The machine has 8 gb of RAM, there might be an Internet browser running (I use this program to livestream to Facebook, so a browser with Facebook may be open) and I am not sure how to set execution priority.

If you save the stream to a file instead of streaming it to the Internet, are you still experiencing dropped frames?

Uncheck the URL streams and check the Save to file option.
