Choosing a PC for League of Legends!

At Playtech, we understand that diving into the world of League of Legends (LoL) is an exhilarating experience. Whether you’re plotting strategies to take down the Nexus or just enjoying the thrill of the Rift, having the right gaming PC can make all the difference. That's why we're here to guide you through the minimum specifications required to play League of Legends smoothly on one of our Playtech gaming PCs.


Why the Right Specs Matter

First things first, why should you care about specs? The right hardware ensures that you experience the game as it was meant to be played—smoothly, without lag, and with stunning graphics. It enhances your gameplay, making every moment more enjoyable and competitive.


The Essentials: Minimum Specifications

While League of Legends is known for being relatively light on hardware requirements, ensuring your PC meets these minimum specifications is crucial for a seamless experience. Here’s what you need:


Processor (CPU)

  • Minimum: Intel Core i3
  • Playtech Recommended: 12th gen Intel Core i5 or higher

The CPU is the brain of your computer, and a good one ensures that the game runs smoothly, even during intense team fights!
Riot Games lists an intel Core i3-530 as the minimum required CPU, but this processor is now over a decade old, which means it's no longer available to purchase in a pre-built PC.

There's other downsides about using hardware that's over a decade old - and that includes that you'll have to set the graphics to their lowest settings and the PC will be extremely slow and difficult to use, so it won't be very fun!

Instead, what we'd recommend is going for a more recent model Intel i5 CPU, so that you will be able to run the game at higher settings and the PC will also be faster while browsing the internet and doing other common tasks.

Graphics Card (GPU)

  • Minimum: DirectX 9.0c compatible graphics card with 512 MB or higher VRAM
  • Recommended: Nvidia GTX 1650 or higher.

A solid GPU is crucial for rendering the beautiful graphics and smooth animations that make LoL so visually appealing, but if you go with the minimum requirements you're probably going to have to turn all the graphics down to their lowest settings!

Instead we'd recommend at least an Nvidia GTX 1650, so that you can play at Full HD resolution (1920x1080) and still have great graphics and a smooth framerate.
