Can this system run non-intensive games (mainly LoL) at high fps&settings?

Hello forum goers, this is my first post here, and my first build too, I'd like to ask if my system below will work (that's most important), and also could it run low-intensity games, namely League of Legends, on high fps (Over 70-80) with high settings. However the monitor I will get for this system will likely not be a 1920 x 1280 and more like a 1680 x 1050 or lower, just so u guys know.

Also I haven't chosen a power supply yet for this system, I'm not quite sure what i need really, I've asked a couple of my friends who built computers before and got mixed results (some say 500W is fine, some say I should at least get 600W), either way I don't mind spending the extra 15$ for a 80 Bronze certified PSU, but I would like to get one around the 50-60 mark still as this is kind of a budget system.

Case: Enermax Coenus Gun Metal Mid tower ATX (Haven't finalized yet, Will this fit the stuff below? My ideal case I wanted to get is the NZXT Phantom 240, but can't find any for the MSRP of $70 here in Vancouver, BC)

CPU: AMD FX 6300

GPU: Sapphire Toxic Tri-X Radeon R9 270X 2 GB GDDR5

RAM: Kingston HyperX Genesis 8GB DDR3-1600MHz CL9 Dual Channel Kit (2 x 4GB) 8GB kit

Motherboard: ASrock 970 Extreme3 (I don't need a really great one, but is this one good enough to handle all my parts? or should I go for the extreme4? Mostly interested in this one right now because of the $72 price tag for the NCIX mother's day sale.)

Hard Drive(S): Kingston SSDnow V300 120 GB (Yes only a single SSD, I was told it is likely more than enough because I don't plan to do anything too crazy on it, would be nice if you guys could confirm that for me.)


Overall, I got or are going to pick up this week most of the stuff here from craigslist for a total of what should be $650, yes I know craigslist dangers warranty and stuff but I don't think paying that extra $150-200 for a couple of 1 year warranties is worth it imo.

I also have an Linksys AE300 external usb wifi adapter instead of a wifi card (bought it a year ago for something else but never really got used for that), I'm pretty sure its adequate enough, but your opinions on this would be nice too.

As for better CPU cooling, I am activity looking for lightly used low price closed circuit liquid coolers on craigslist, but am not in a rush to get one, any recommendations on what to get?

Lastly, am I missing anything? That would be a bit embarrassing when trying to put it together... so yeah.

Thanks for responding in advance!

  1. Yes it will run fine. But make sure that the system actually works first.
    If you are aiming for aesthetics in a small space, go find a H100i.
    If you are aiming for silence, an air cooler would be better.
    noctua nh-d14, phanteks ph-tc14pe or
    cooler master Hyper 212 EVO for light overclocks
    550W is fine as along it is a quality unit. XFX, seasonic or Antec are good
