I'm aiming to have a system within the next couple months (what with my federal refund coming in) that will be a nice upgrade to my current toaster of a laptop (still on an old P4 processor in this thing).
General hope is that it can achieve workable FPS (at least 30-60) on titles like League of Legends or Civilization V.
I'm not looking for an omnipotent machine on a budget but I figured if anywhere could come up with a solution it would be y'all. I've been following some of the builds that come from here and am amazed at a good deal of them. If what I want can't be done in my price range feel free to push the budget up no more than $200.
That said, if it can be done cheaper I'd love for that to happen as well for obvious reasons.
