Okay. I literally know nothing about building computers, is this all the stuff I would need, minus the monitor and stuff like that? Also, how can you tell that that would be able to do the job? xD

K. Derp question. xD
So yes, it can on max with the capabilities of streaming and good FPS? xD
Streaming isn't all that important, honestly, just would be a nice bonus. But if it is good enough to max it out at the price, and thats all I need, I can't complain haha

This will handle it for sure. Might have a little extra, but I'd rather have a little extra than get there and have a PC that wouldn't do the job. You can learn very easily about how to build a computer by looking at a few Youtube videos. In about an hour you'll know everything that you need to know.

Aside from those, you'll need a monitor, a mouse and a keyboard, plus some other things that you feel like you need. Like headset and stuff like that.

I use to have a PC with similar specs, a bit worse, and I ran LoL at a constant 85fps at max settings.

There's some fans coming already installed in the case, and there's the stock CPU cooler that comes in its box. You won't need more if you're not overclocking.

Ok. Last question I hope, well 2.
Is there a thing to make the computer able to connect to wifi? And what kind of disc drive would be good for it?

The optical drive honestly doesn't matter, the cheapest will do the job. To connect to Wifi you need a Wireless Network Adapter, which is about 25 bucks, for a standard one.

it will do it. I run max settings on my A8 1.5 MHz laptop with 1gb dedicated card crossfire with it around 50-60FPS. I also though run a Samsung 830 ssd for fast loads (not that it matters as you have to wait on them 386 cpus to load it) and I have 16gb of ram so no swap file at all.

I like that build. simple and complete and all for under $400.

Will the video card here have an hdmi port so that I could use my samsung 32 led tv as monitor? Would that be possible?

Try not to revive an old thread, but as long as the card has a HDMI port you can use your TV with the same connection.
