Hello everybody, as you may have guessed, my PC runs LoL with low FPS. Before 1-2 patches it was ok, even in teamfights (about 15-20 FPS), with very low all settings. But since the new patches my FPS drops a lot especially in teamfights and I am considering a PC upgrade.

Here are my PC stats: Pentium 4 3.4 GHz, 2.0 GB RAM and ATI Radon x600 (0x5B62). I went to canyourunit.com, and I failed at Recommended configuration at the graphics card. It said it need a minimum GeForce 8800 or equivalent.

So the question is: if I just replace my graphics card, will I be able to run LoL at very low settings at a decent FPS at teamfights? Or even if I get a decent graphic card it wouldn't be enough, since my processor has old technology? Thanks for your time reading.
