You'll want something with a pentium 4 processor, for maximum speed. If you can get a pentium 1 though all the better. The smaller something is, the faster it is in computer terms.

Also, shoot for 512mb of RAM, you need a lot of memory to play consistently.

Any motherboard integrated graphics card will do, but be sure to get a 20" monitor at the GREATEST. LoL won't run on large monitors.


The guy below me is trolling.

You'll have to know how to put it together, but it runs like a beast.

If the only thing you're playing is League of Legends, you won't need more than an ATI HD 6670. That should give you 60 FPS at 1920 x 1080 with everything on maximum settings. The question you should be asking isn't "what do I need to play League of Legends" but "what do I need to play everything else?"

Also, that wishlist is terrible.

Everything aside, having super powerful hardware is largely pointless because what you're always constrained by whatever monitor that you're using. About 25-30% of whatever you're spending on the computer should go back into the display panel. If you get a $1,000 USD computer then be prepared to spend at least $250 to $300 on a panel.

Build your own, my specs are 8GB DDR3 RAM, 2TB HDD (Hard drives are rising in price (Doubling) atm due to flooding in thailand, so maybe wait a bit to buy a computer) 6870 Radeon HD Sapphire Addition Graphics Card 800 Watt PSU, my motherboard is thee Sabertooth p67, which Looks sick ;D. mine is a bit overkill, I'd go no less then 4GB of RAM, 512 MB HDD, and compare graphics cards online imo, Newegg.com is a good place to buy parts. if you're not looking to build your own, then I don't give a **** what you buy because it's going to suck either way.

Two main questions.

Do you know how to build one? Cause it's much better than buying from a **** pc company which all are.

Do you have any resuable parts from another computer like monitor, keyboard etc?

For 2k you can buy parts online and make a pretty stronk machine that will run any game.
