Hello,

i want a new PC for games/multimedia/office and streaming League of Legends gameplay (internet is good enough). My budget is not huge (I dont want more expensive parts if it is not necessary), so i choosed these parts:

http://pcpartpicker.com/p/yXcJ

I would like to ask you, if these parts will work together and if someone got experiences with streaming gameplay if this configuration is enough.

Why I picked this parts:

CASE: i want small case and this one looks nice
MB: I want Asrock Z77 because if offers OC for non-K series and it will give me cca +10% performance
Graphic Card: League of Legends is not graphic intensive game so i dont need high-end card (i will be streaming only LoL, in other games i dont care if i will play on medium or high settings); 2GB because i will be using 2 monitors (1600x900), one for game one for other stuff
Processor: I think its good performance/price
HDD: its 7200, thats the only thing I take care, capacity is not important for me
RAM: 8GB should be ok, 1600 Mhz too, its low profile (better for small case?), it has XMP (maybe it will work with that MB)
PSU: I have no idea which PSU, this one looked fine

So my question are:

1. CPU - is it worth or can i save money and take i5-3350P (for streaming 720p it is requiered 4 core, at least 5000 points in benchmark test - Is it true?), will I feel the diference if I pay for 3470 instead of 3350P?
2. Graphic card - Do I need 2GB? or 1 GB will be ok. Anyone know how many FPS i can get in LoL at "very high" details without shadows? GPU shouldnt be important for streaming, is it true?
3. CPU cooler - Do I need buy new one or boxed is fine even if I will overclock CPU?
4. CASE - can I use this or should I take bigger one for more space and better cooling?
5. RAM - Is 8GB ok for streaming?
6. PSU - Is this PSU ok or do I need better one?

Summary: Is this system good enough for streaming League of Legends? Should I change something? Can I save money somewhere or do I need invest more?

Thank you for your opinions and sorry for my english, its not my main language.

- u cant OC on non-K cpu even if the mobo is z77
- definitely 1GB, using 2 monitor has nothing to do with 1GB/2GB. gaming "across" 2 monitor does
- i love that core 1000 :)  often recommend it to builders. but Rosewill Line-M is the best budget mATX case
- for PSU, check corsair 600 V2 on pcpartpicker. it is on sale. cheaper than 500W

@AMD Radeon:

Thanks for fast replay, but I have still few questions.

If i cant OC non-K, for what is good NO-K OC technology from Asrock (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w-aH0DQYkcg). Also here they are talking something about OC http://hothardware.com/Reviews/Intel-Core-i53470-QuadCo... or http://www.pcper.com/reviews/Processors/Intel-Core-i5-3... or its only marketing? Im totally newbie is this, so every advice is good.

Ok, i will take 1GB Graphic card.

Thanks for HDD and PSU tip, but im going to shop from shop in my country. And there isnt 600W PSU Cheaper :/ . But 500W should be enough, no? Or do I need more?

Ye, but its in slovak language. Im going to shop from www.alza.sk . They dont have best prices but have good services (most of the time) and they are in my town so if i have to return something is good.

This is my current build: http://postimage.org/image/ebdjhif63/
