Buying new gaming PC, 400-500$ budget

Approximate Purchase Date: Within a month.

Budget Range: 400-500$

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, League of legends - only reason I'm buying a new pc

Parts Not Required: Keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers, OS. Maybe PSU, Hard disk.

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Any, never bought pc parts online before

Country: Croatia

Parts Preferences: AMD, heard some very good reviews

Overclocking: Maybe, never did it as my current pc wouldn't survive it

SLI or Crossfire: Maybe, don't know.

Monitor Resolution: 1280x1024

Additional Comments: Looking for something within my budget that could run LoL smoothly and preferably be able to stream / record. High graphic settings are not as important as fps to me.

I don't know much about PC components but I've been looking at AMD fx6300 for CPU and Radeon 7750 for GPU.
All help is much appreciated :)

  2. Thanks for the help :)
    Do you know how well this could run League of legends, as an estimate on fps.
    Would I be able to stream? Could it handle running LoL, OBS, TS3 at the same time - without dropping fps below playable level?
    I'd really like know more before I make a buy.

    This is why a 6-Core Processor is a good option for you: running LoL, OBS, TS3 at the same time.
    And this is a overclockable build: good motherboard and cpu cooler. At least 20% increase cpu performance should be expected.

    R7 260 aka HD7770 is a good gpu for Lol. You should get high FPS for SXGA gaming.

    Here similar resolution:
