PCs for High School Gaming League

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Original PosterOP

So there's a long story to go along with this, but basically, me and couple friends are trying to make a high school esports team at our school for League of Legends. We need computers and might not get 100% funded so we're looking at how cheap we can get the cost without spending money on a crap computer.

 

This is the quick build I made:

I'm not sure if we'll need a networking card or not but I put it in anyways. 

 

I'm wondering if there's anyone on here who has already made a bare minimum build for LoL or any other advice or help I can get. If there's anything that I can get cheaper that I don't know about please let me know.

 

Thanks!

 

Edit:

I forgot to mention that through the High School Esports organization we can buy $800 NZXT Pc's all the way up to I think $2000

If you wanted to you could even do less of a gpu, the 1050ti runs league on max settings at about 100 fps so if you want to save money you could possibly go lower

A potato could run most esports titles. 

A G4560 and a H110 motherboard + RX460/560 would be a cheaper alternative. 

I'm assuming you're fine with rebates. 

Maybe use a 120/250 GB SSD instead of a HDD. 

Get a decent PSU. The CX550M is quite cheap, and very decent. 

Pretty much all consumer motherboards have an RJ45 connector, so unless you need Wi-fi, you don't need a card. 

You can get an activation code for Windows for $20-30 on Reddit or Kinguin

I was looking at minimum specs for stuff and they said that a GTX 1050 ti would only get around 120fps in game but that doesn't seem right, is that? I have a 1070 at home so idk what limits stuff anymore xD

as cheap as possible. Anything over $700 isn't worth it because of the premade we could get for $800

This will work.
