    RTX 3080 power supply requirements - 850W?

    8700K to 9900K Upgrade For Streamer / Gamer PC?

    Intel 9900k is soldered one and excellent for games. If she has one PC for games and streaming then yes. If she play games mostly at 1080p then yes. For video encoding (stream) in this case use NVENC, not CPU.

    NVIDIA Updates Video Encode and Decode Matrix with Reference to Ampere GPUs

    Yes. The same NVENC. Like for example on 1660 Ti, lowest graphics card with full featured Turing NVENC and without RTX. NVENC improvement in Ampere will be only in software updates distributed with drivers.

    PCIE cables for 3080

    Use two separate cables and connectors on the PSU. If you don't plan to use overclocked (Intel) CPU together with 3080, then 750W PSU will be enough. If you want use overclocked CPU and 3080 in one system then buy new PSU (and you will be ready for 4080 in 2022 ;)).
