Need help building a pc for LoL (capable of streaming as well if possible) 400-500 budget

Hey im trying to build a pc mainly for LoL. I do want to stream but if the budget doesn't allow it i'll be fine without it (but feel free to shoot some builds at me that is capable of streaming). Im looking at a 400-500 dollar budget just for the pc. (mouse, keyboard, monitor and os i already have) It doesn't matter to me if it's amd or intel as long as it can handle LoL on high settings with 60 fps. I may need a wireless adapter so ill be needing some assistance with that as well.

other information: i dont know much about gaming pcs or the terminology, so bare with me

I'm also aware that black friday/cyber monday will be coming soon, would it be wise to wait?

Thanks in advance.

  1. If you are willing to wait there are usually great deals to be had on components on Cyber Monday, and I recommend something like a A10-6800K based build for budget reasons

    Are both builds capable of being overclocked? i don't how to do it myself but i do have a friend that knows how. Also, are both builds capable of streaming?
  7. the 6300 cpu is faster then some of intel i5. works better due to it six cores. the i3 going to be faster then the x740. the x740 going to be the cheapest build.
  8. Thanks for the help. Going for the amd 6300 rig.
