Looking for a computer that can play league extremely well and do some word processing. my price range is 700 to 1000. Will need an OS as well as gaming peripherals (keyboard,mouse) and would like wifi capability.

Why Mini ATX and no wifi? There is really no point to getting a mini atx without wifi if its just gonna sit on your desk... He said he needed wifi card

Banshebot 1 point 42 months ago

The motherboard has wifi.

it appears the motherboard in this build is no longer being sold ecept refurbished on amazon do you have a recommendation on a diffrent one or just buy it refurbished?

Banshebot 1 point 41 months ago

This one. Or this if the budget allows it.

ROVIANzzz submitter 1 point 40 months ago

I have the motherboard,memory,storage,os anyway I can get the rest to make this thing jump at 550-600?

You really only need a potato to run it. Alternatively, you could try for a broadwell setup with iris pro graphics. For instance, an i5 5675C, H/Z 97 chipset, 8GB of RAM, a SSD, case, PSU. Set that rig in a mITX format with an included wifi. Done deal. Better than any of the APUs. The i-GPU in the 5675C is amazing compared to the A10 7###'s.

I don't know, just a suggestion.

The Broadwell CPUs are already dying out, but they are solid performers like the Haswells with a better i-GPU than AMD's APUs (<equivalent to ~R7 250 DDR3 version).

A non-gaming computer can run full settings on LoL at 1080p well over 60fps.

Mobo: Solid quality. mITX so small. has wifi included (possibly bluetooth as well).

RAM: it's RAM.

Storage: Decided to stack a 500GB Crucial SSD because OS = 20GB. LOL = what, 12GB? rest for other things.

Case: Small. Lots of air blowing through that 140mm fan. airflow is great, that being said it can be a dust magnet.

PSU: Have not heard anything bad about the ARC series by Rosewill. If anyone can correct me if I'm wrong in choosing this, go ahead.

OS: Most expensive home version to help you gauge price (the older ones are cheaper so you could buy those then upgrade to win10 from there).

Keyboard: Mechanical and decent for the price.

Mouse: Arguably the best all-arounder and fits all grip types. Has insanely high DPI/CPI (I think people prefer CPI nowadays for correct term.)

Instead you could get more bang for your buck by opting for Banshebot's build instead. Trust that the mobo (which I chose as well) has wifi and antennas included with it.

What is the difference between the CPU in your build and the cpu in banshee bots seeing as it is quite a costly upgrade.

Banshebot 1 point 42 months ago

With the build I gave you, you have a very good dedicated gpu that will run all games at 1080p 60+ fps so if you choose that you don't just want to play LoL you have the option. The Cpu I chose is better than this one also. The only difference is that the 5675C has a better built in GPU. But it nowhere near compares to the 390. If you want to save money use the build I provided and go for a 270 GPU. It will still run LoL no problem but it's better to have the option to play better games if you have a 1k budget. Feel free to ask me any more questions.

ROVIANzzz submitter 1 point 42 months ago

Thanks for the help I suppose I should add I would like maximum performance and longevity in my price range.

ROVIANzzz submitter 1 point 42 months ago

Also would I be able to play say Skyrim and CS-go on this computer? at optimal settings?

Would I be able to come back to this forum for help if I wanted to upgrade? Also what is the monitor that would access the full potential of these builds?

Banshebot 1 point 42 months ago

1080p or 1440p if you go for the 390 GPU.

ROVIANzzz submitter 1 point 42 months ago

word i would like my fps to be above 150 for league. Would this acheive that?

Banshebot 1 point 42 months ago

Well above! you'd probably be able to run it twice on the same machine and still hit over 200

ROVIANzzz submitter 1 point 42 months ago

Banshebot 1 point 42 months ago
