[New PC/Rebuild] for streaming league of legends

Hey guys, my pc died several months ago (processor/motherboard failure). I am now looking to rebuild it into something that can stream and/or record league of legends at a decent framerate on twitchtv/own3d

This may be asking a lot since my budget will be around $500 so just let me know if this is even a possibility.

Here are my current parts:

Case: Apevia X-Cruiser
Videocard: GeForce GTS-250
PowerSupply: Antec 650W

2.5gigs of DDR2 ram/ and windows xp

more than likely I will need a new motherboard, cpu, cpu fan, and also if possible, a new harddrive 750gb-1TB


Approximate Purchase Date: This week
Budget Range: $500ish

System Usage: streaming/recording league of legends on websites such as twitchtv/own3d/youtube

Parts Not Required: powersupply/case/diskdrive/maybe videocard
Preferred Website: newegg
Country: US
Overclocking: Maybe
SLI or Crossfire: Maybe

Additional Comments: here is a wishlist i threw together with the help of somebody on reddit: Wishlist

it still needs a cpu fan added as well.

any help will be greatly appreciated, thanks!

  1. Your wishlist, but go with an i3-2120 and a H61 motherboard. You can go with 2x2gb 1600mhz ram to save money.

    I would also suggest you get Windows 7.

    Thanks for the recommendations, any reasoning behind them?

    Also, how come windows 7?
  3. Well in like 2 or 3 years Microsoft will cut off support for XP and IT'S AN OS FROM 2002!

    i3 is better and the H61 is a 1155 socket.
