Is it possible for a CPU or a motherboard to have a build in graphics card able to play LoL well? Because I am going for a low cost build so if there is a decently priced CPU that also has a graphics card in it then that would be great.

More about : cpu motherboard

Hello,

While no chip has a 'card' built in, there are many chips that do allow you to play games without needing a dedicated graphics solution.

Other than LoL, what games do you plan on playing? What resolution are you playing at?

Most importantly, whats your budget? We can throw something together for you after you let me know the answers to above questions

an intel i5-3570k has built in HD graphics and should run LoL just fine, if you want allitle more oomph, go with an i5 4670k, its built in graphics are slightly better, but both should be fine. keep in mind youl need an lga 1155 motherboard for the 3570k, or an lga 1150 motherboard for 4670k.

If playing LoL is your main focus, I would shy away from any Intel options as an i5 would be overkill for what you're trying to achieve. An A10-6800k would likely outperform an i5 in LoL and costs about $80 cheaper.

its all about preference, but the i5 is an all around better performer. id put my hard earned money down on the i5.

The most powerful built-in graphics are found in the AMD A10-6800K. It costs under $150 and it beats even the most powerful Intel i7s in gaming performance using their integrated GPUs. The i5-3570K is $220 and still gets crushed by the A10-6800K:






If you don't want to get a discrete card, then the A10-6800K is the CPU that you want.

Sure, but i have to imagine, that if hes not getting a dedicated gpu, then this build is not solely for gaming. and the i5 will perform better in a variety of applications then the A10 and also run LoL just fine. i guess it all depends on how you slice it. but on a pc that is used for more then LoL, id put my money on something that is an all around performer.

Thanks for the best answer! Glad to be of service (and to show up Intel as the one-trick pony that they are....LOL)

see thats just it, im not bias. i just recommend what will do the better overall job depending on the situation. if his pc isnt just for LoL, an all around better processor, that plays LoL well, and will take care of his other PC related needs, seems like the best solution.

Intel is way too expensive for me just playing LoL and browsing

Actually, that's just it. You ARE biased. He said he wants integrated graphics to play a specific game because he is going for a LOW COST build. So, #1 - It's specifically for gaming. #2 - It's low-cost. BOTH of those criteria eliminate Intel from the equation and yet you still suggest it? Who are you to call me biased when all I did was answer the question that was asked instead of try to make an Intel sales pitch.
