Optimal Hardware Suggestions

League of Legends system requirements are very basic for the majority of gaming computers. So, in the majority of cases, you will not need to worry whether your computer is capable of running this game. However, for those running older gaming systems, please be aware, the minimum requirements include a 3GHz CPU and 2GB RAM.

If you are running a PC with Intel HD 4000 integrated graphics or AMD Vega 8 or 11 APU, then you will be able to play League of Legends easily. If you have a GPU with at least 512MB VRAM which supports DirectX 9 or above, then you will be good to go.

What Gaming PC Do We Recommend?

If you are looking to build or upgrade your gaming PC to run League of Legends, we recommend the following specifications:

  • CPU: AMD APU (2200G / 2400G)
  • RAM: 8GB DDR4
  • GPU: Integrated GPU from Ryzen APU

You can check out our $300 and $400 gaming PC builds for the entire PC build list.


Can you play LoL without a graphics card?

The answer to this question is both yes, and no. For all intents and purposes, no you cannot play League of Legends without a graphics card. When you take into consideration that games need graphics in order to run, this is to be expected.

Even if you have a lower quality GPU this will still allow you to run League of Legends to an extent. Granted, it will not play well in comparison to when you are using the correct graphics card, but it will still be able to operate. Without a graphics card, the running of League of Legends will not be possible.

However, the answer is both yes, and no, because there is a way of getting around not having a graphics card. If you have an integrated GPU in your PC or laptop, then this will successfully run LoL. While the gameplay will not be as good as using a standard GPU, iGPUs are still a reasonably good alternative.

Can League of Legends run on 4GB RAM?

Yes, if you have a PC with 4 GB of RAM, then you will be able to play League of Legends. The minimum specifications stated are 2 GB of RAM. When you take this into consideration, 4 GB of RAM is more than enough to run League of Legends with no issues.

While 2 GB of RAM is the minimum requirement, your gameplay will be far better if you have a higher RAM. The recommended specs for League of Legends is 4 GB RAM if you are using anything that is above Windows 7.

Having 4 GB RAM is actually the optimum amount needed for LoL. While you can have more RAM than this, this is the lowest amount we would recommend.

    Is this enough for LOL Streaming?

    • Hi Patrick, thanks for the question.
      Since you’ve got an Nvidia GPU, you can expect minimal performance loss if you use the NVENC encoder for streaming. As for LOL performance, you should be looking at a solid 60FPs @1080p – but of course, it all depends on the settings you use.

        Graphics card my problem?

        • That PC should should be getting well over 100FPS in League of legends. Maybe try updating the drivers of your GPU. What FPS do you get in other games? League of legends is not a demanding game and you have a fairly nice PC.

    • Charles

      The minimum requirement is:

      CPU: 3GHz Processor (supporting SSE2 instruction set or higher)
      RAM: 2GB RAM
      HDD: 12GB Free Space

      So I would say that you probably can run LOL.
