System Usage from Most to Least Important: Playing League of Legends and Diablo 3 smoothly with no FPS drops, ideally a consistent 60 fps for both games.
Parts Not Required: Mouse, Keyboard, Speakers
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: A reliable site preferably
Parts Preferences: No parts preference, maybe a little explanation on the difference between AMD and Intel CPUs. I'd like to stay away from integrates graphic cards.
SLI or Crossfire: No Idea
Monitor Resolution: High resolution preferably, but not necessary.
Additional Comments: I already have a laptop for other uses, so I need a cost effective desktop for playing League of Legends and Diablo 3 comfortably with no fps issues. Bonus points to the person who can keep it under $600 while the rig is still able to run D3 and LOL at 60 fps.
Hey guys, after some searching and research this is what I came up with
CPU - Intel Core i3-2100 3.1GHz Dual-Core $89.99
Motherboard- Gigabyte GA-H61M-S2H Micro ATX LGA1155 $59.99
Memory - Corsair XMS3 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1333 $34.99
Hard Drive - Western Digital Scorpio Black 160GB 2.5" 7200RPM $48.21
Video Card - Sapphire Radeon HD 6850 1GB $114.99
Case - Rosewill Blackbone ATX Mid Tower $33.99
Power Supply- Antec 550W ATX12V $64.99
Optical Drive - Sony AD-7280S-0B DVD/CD Writer $17.99
Monitor - Acer V193WEJb 19.0" $89.99
Operating System- Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 (64-bit) $99.99
no case, and you would have to get like a 19" monitor, otherwise your PC will pretty much only have like 450$ to work with, but this will work, you can shave off some money for a case or larger monitor by getting a cheaper h61 motherboard or a refurb hard drive.
only way i can think of is 1. buy them and try it yourself and 2. look at all th ebanchmarks on this site and others that you can find until you see what you want, or look at benchmarkls for the cpu, then the gpu, and figure out the midpoint, should be somewhere around there probably.
