Ok, so I decieded on buying a new PC seeing as my Laptop can't run lol at 15+ FPS.
Which specs would I need to run LoL on 60+ FPS with TS3 running and recording with fraps/streaming?

Help please.

EDIT: Would also like to run on Medium - Very High Settings on all.

My specs: Intel i5 750
ATI powercolor 5770
Silicon Power Ripjaws @ 1333 i think
50GB HDD
I run in an avarage of 70 - 120 frames ( the GC is sort of burned out, long story).

Something a little less expencive migth do, if so youl have to play with low - mid graphs ( not sure, but its my personal opinion)

(Used overclockers simply for convenience, sorry for anyone using the Euro, i apologise)

CPU

Core i3 or i5,
personally, i would chose i3 for what you need,

but if you want a bit of future proofing, go for the i5 650
http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showpr...=6&subcat=1672

The core i5 760 is really not needed and i7 is overkill.

Core i3 cheap alternate
http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showpr...=6&subcat=1671 -- << 550 - 3.20GHz

http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showpr...=6&subcat=1671 -- << 540 3.06GHz

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Power Supply

Really all you need is 550-650watts, theres honestly no reason why you would want to go over 700watts, afterall, the cpu dye is 32nm, meaning it uses less power, the Core i series are only 1.2v
Same as the GPU, they also use far less power.

i would recommend going for a 650w
keep in mind the following
it MUST have a 8pin CPU connector
6pin connector for GPU
Sata power connections.
80% efficient is also a must tbh,
http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showpr...-117-AN&tool=5
as the example it has everything you need, and is power efficient

keep in mind power supplys aren't cheap, for a good one you'll be spending minimum of around 70+

just scroll through
(Take also into account how much power the G-card you'll be getting as well)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

RAM

2 GB stick is fine for a start, but its highly recommended you get atleast 4GB (2x2sticks or a single 4GB stick, 2x2 so you can take advantage of Dual channel if the RAM you buy supports it.)

1066hz or 1333hz should be enough for gaming needs.

i personally use
http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showpr...=8&subcat=1516
they work perfectly fine.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Motherboard

a motherboard that supports Core i3/i5 (LGA1156) there are 2 different version H55 and P55, P55 is the better and higher priced of the 2.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

GPU

Anything 8 series+
whatever you are willing to pay for.

I've got a feeling that he wants to buy a pre-built rig not a custom one. These days a good PC has about 4 GB of RAM and any decent graphics card. I currently use a laptop with 4 GB RAM, a GeForce 9500M GS 512 MB graphics card (this is a laptop one you'll have to look into computer ones yourself) and 2.0 GHz Dual Core processor. Its just over 2 years old now and runs LoL at above 60 fps constantly and up to 100.

Anything with a similar set up will do the job easily. Shouldn't be too expensive these days either.

Ok, I never built a PC myself before. Is it easy to do and is there anything I might screw up if I try?

we have the same problem (well, i have never had more than 13 FPS, but it's similar) :P seems that however my solution is different... i started being sick of Windows after i changed from Win98 to WinXP... i deleted Vista and reinstalled XP... still i think that DOS was better, and Win7 does not promise anything special to me. too heavy operative systems. i'll try a Mac, and see what happens.

GTFO.
You're one of these people that's like 'Hi my pc is $2000 and it has lights in it now it looks like a giant spaceship, cool right?'.

I got an AMD 4400+ x2 @ 2,4GHz
ATI Radeon 4830 HD
4GB DDR2 RAM
Be Quiet! 550W power supply

I can run everything @ maxed while on a VoIP program and my game still runs @ 50-60 FPS steadily.

So the part where you say 'a little less expensive will force you to play with low-mid graphs' is absolute BS.

Sorry for my rude language but people like you........ASKDSOAKDOKD
