Do I need a capture card to stream my PC games?

Pretty straight forward. I notice that right now my PC games tend to have pixels in them while streaming (I don't see them but the viewer does). Will a capture card help with this? What exactly is a good one for the Asus ROG Strix Z390-E MOBO? I have a GeForce RTX 2070 gpu and an i9-9900k CPU. (PSU is 750 W)

    You do not need a capture card unless your computer is not powerful enough to play the game and stream at the same time (in which case you basically need two computers). Your computer sounds like it should be plenty powerful enough to stream most games. I don't know what you mean by "tend to have pixels"; all PC games have pixels. That's how they work. Maybe you mean there's some sort of compression artifact, in which case you need to adjust your encoder settings.
