Get the answer Deemo13 October 16, 2012 3:15:13 AM Well, it depends on what games you are playing. Lower end games will run fine. I've got a 4600+ and it runs League of Legends and alot of the Source engine games as well as alot of other games. That being said you would definitely benefit from a new computer. What games and resolution are you playing at? m 0 l thblite October 16, 2012 5:27:41 AM mainly league of legends on low settings ( i can run high but that lags in teamfights). league and WoW mainly m 0 l Deemo13 October 16, 2012 7:15:18 PM If you want to make it cheap, you can just add a graphics card onto that computer and run LoL just fine. I have no idea how WoW would run though, as its pretty CPU bound. m 0 l thblite October 16, 2012 10:51:47 PM thanks, any recommendations as to how much memory the graphics card needs? m 0 l Best solution Deemo13 October 16, 2012 10:55:48 PM Depends on the resolution of your monitor. For your computer, you can't run much more than a Radeon HD7750 or a Radeon HD6670 depending on price. Here's what I would do. I would purchase a 6670 or 7750 for your current computer. If it works out great, you have a cheap solution to your problem. If not, save up more for a proper gaming computer and while you save up, use the computer with the GPU you just bought. Then when it comes to sell your old computer, it can be worth more and you can sell it as an upgraded gaming computer.
