The motherboard in my build has onboard graphics, and that is what is being used now. I was wondering if adding a high end graphics card will buy any performance improvement to streaming video? Or doesn't video processing come into play when streaming video.

No, graphics card should have no impact on streaming unless there is some fancy pants transcoding app that can offload to GPU.
