LoL build ultra settings, ultra budget

Don't need one myself, quite happy with mine, but I wanted to do a theoretical build for a budget system that can smoothly (50+ fps consistently) and start the groundwork. LoL optimal requirements posted (more like optimistic) may need to be expensive.

Needs: Fast storage meant for supporting epic music playlist, win8, LoL, any older games or less gpu intensive games Fast ram Gpu handles 50+ fps at ultra settings consistent CPU BETTER THAN A 1 CORE AT 3.1 ghz Case+psu OS windows 8 for optimal performance Quality motherboard that doesn't need all the bells and whistles and cheap Super portable

I know that a ~$700 a10 APU+r7 250 build could probably qualify, but I'm just trying to make this cheaper than $650 while having awesome performance. Much comments and criticism please!

The build you listed will absolutely wreck LoL, haha. You could probably get 50+ FPS on LoL on a build that ran you $400 if you seriously wanted to go that low.

However, I would not go with ECS for my motherboard brand. I do not see many favorable reviews of them.

Thanks for your input! I just picked the cheapest itx currently listed. I don't get motherboards as I do the easy stuff. I figure though that $100 CPU ~$100 SSD would be hard to fit into a $400 build for the idea of speedy little mosquito of a LAN box haha. $600 would be more plausible to get excellent ram decent gpu and a case that doesn't have a garbage psu

I think for sole use as LoL gameplay, that's fantastic and if recommend that to anyone who plays just LoL! However, whoever decides to build one of these is gonna want to play other games besides LoL. I would think the a10 Kaveri would be more logical for people who plays LoL and other online games. Say like 40fps on avg for cod and bf4 on medium settings. Or even just a 760k with a $100-$150 gpu? Meh?

Gaming midrange on the A8-6600K with suboptimal builds, unlike the one posted above.
