Hey guys, I am currently running os 10.6.8 and I'm curious if 10.8 runs league better.

If anyone has experience with both or could just tell me how it runs on 10.8 it would be greatly appreciated. I'd also take any other opinions on the upgrade to 10.8 if anyone has any.

So, I guess. Is 10.8 worth the upgrade?

Its hard to track down benchmarks, but the last time I tried, there was actually a very small performance dip going to 10.7.5, and then a decent performance gain going from that to 10.8. The older releases usually only get security updates, and the newer ones get graphics improvements, albeit infrequently.

Just speaking from a non-gaming standpoint, there's plenty of reasons to switch, as they've added hundreds of new features in both lion and mountain lion, some of which are seriously useful. Its a great value for $20.

So you're saying the switch in of itself is worth it?
I mean, the only real game I play these days is league of legends, so it's important I know what I'm getting into before I make the switch.
