Hi. Need a new computer, and I want to play with max graphic settings and have stable 60 FPS. Which specs should I choose (building it myself) to get that? As cheap as possible, this computer will only be used for LoL.

I got a mate running that setup, not enough. He can't get past 45 fps.

How about not giving advice since you obviously don't know the first thing about computers?

What "setup"? He didn't list any setup. O_o

You can get a fairly cheap PC with Intel Core i5 (or even i3) CPU, 4GB DDR3 RAM and a Nvidia GTX 560Ti for example. Can run 60 FPS stable. It's a typical gaming rig nowadays.

Intel i3-2100, 2x2GB DDR3 1333 MHz RAM, nVidia (not directly from nvidia, pick a vendor like Asus for example) GTS240 1GB. That should be enough for 60+ FPS.

"As cheap as possible" and you mention 560Ti?

Why not? It's not an expensive top level card like GTX 590 or something, it's mainstream gaming hardware. And it's a very good value for the money.
He also mentioned 60FPS with max settings. That may seem easy with a game like this at first sight but that's far from truth. In intense team fights with 10 heroes casting their spells at the same time with all those effects, the framerate tends to drop even on a powerfull PC.
If he desperately needs to save money, something like an ATI HD6770 can be used but I'm not sure about stable 60 FPS then.

Well, depends on where he lives. In my country, 560Ti is a card most middle-class people can't afford.

Uh, ok, maybe he could tell us his financial limit then and we could be more precise.

For the sake of pedantery.

2Gb RAM 1Gb nvidia is in itself not enough. You need more than this to break the 60 fps.
