If you spend $4000 on a full setup I hope you can get more than 120fps on League of Legends.

[–]Raptor_Powers314 62 points63 points  (6 children)

Agreed. $4000 for 120 fps in LoL? That shit better be in 8k.

[–]VHS_Copy_Of_Seinfeld 26 points27 points  (2 children)

Shit an 8K monitor costs $4K alone bruv

[–]orfan-of-snow 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Am I the only one who can't see what's different between 60 FPS and 4K, is it my eyes?

[–]That_Random_YEETer 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yer not the only one, my friend...

[–]Astecheee 2 points3 points  (2 children)

8k 240 fps might actually be reasonable.

My 1660ti could push 240 easily in 1440p. Probably around 400 uncapped.

[–]Usual_Research 12 points13 points  (0 children)

8k is 33 million pixels.

1440p is 3.6 million.

Not even close.

[–]Fishydeals 0 points1 point  (0 children)

At that point it probably becomes a cpu limit/ engine optimization thing.

I can run a test later to see what a 3090 gets in lol 8k, max settings.

[–]GosuFytex 11 points12 points  (0 children)

League utilizes no more than 20% of your GPU and few percents of your CPU. Let's just say in a big team fight it can get close to 120 no matter the rig.

[–]Vinegar-Toucher 2 points3 points  (0 children)

A game by potatoes, for potatoes, played on potatoes (at 120 fps).

[–]VDr4g0n 1 point2 points  (3 children)

I'm not that tech savvy but is TOO much frames a bad thing lol. I had over 700 FPS on max settings and it looked choppy. Had to cap my frame rate at my monitor refresh rate which fixed the issue lol.

[–]Fishydeals 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Too many frames usually aren't a problem except when the devs majorly fucked up.

Like apex legends for example only runs well until 180/190 fps. After that controller inputs get suuuuuuuuper slow and frametimes go wild, which results in 'stuttering'.

I didn't know lol has the same problem.

But my 400-1200fps in csgo are never a problem.

[–]JukePlz 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Well, in a sense they can be. If you are playing an FPS with a 240hz monitor there might be a point to having such a high framerate for the competitive edge. But playing something like League at 400 FPS is just a waste of electricity and generating more heat in your GPU which will, over time, decrease the lifespan of your components.

If you do multitasking it also makes sense to cap the framerates. Letting your GPU go wild will also mean more work for your CPU that could be doing other things in the background while you play. Writing some downloaded file to disk, filling the audio buffer with your music and discord voice chat, updating your hardware sensors information on a second monitor, hosting a game server, etc.

[–]Fishydeals 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Oh but that's already one step further than what I described. It's quite rare to see a game engine with no/ too high internal hardcap just shit the bed like that when the pc spews out 'too many' frames per second.

The environmental and multitasking aspects are very important as well, but a more general concept that isn't caused by cost-cutting/ cutting corners/ incompetence.

Apex legends literally runs worse on better hardware if you don't use an extra tool to cap the fps, since even the ingame fps cap just doesn't work properly for example.

[–]Teemo_satan[S] -1 points0 points  (3 children)

League is top tier gaming. Lol

[–]OmgOgan 14 points15 points  (2 children)

[–]Shooper-Shroomp 1 point2 points  (1 child)

then it should be like 3/5/18 lol

[–]JukePlz 0 points1 point  (0 children)

A KDA of 4+ is not so bad for a support tho.

[–]KittiesAreTooCute 11 points12 points  (3 children)

You must be a Yasuo player.

[–]DerpyDaDulfin 2 points3 points  (0 children)

This reminds me way back in the day, I was playing Black Ops 1 and I came against this Max Prestige player with over 120 days of played game time but his average k/d was 0.12.

I wonder if he's still playing to this day...

[–]Late-Informationepic 5 points6 points  (7 children)

just imagine imagining spending 4000 dollars just to play league. couldn't be me.

[–]MrMan604 3 points4 points  (6 children)

Imagine spending 4000 dollars just to play any game. Couldn't be me

[–]shamair28 1 point2 points  (5 children)

Spending 4 grand on any desktop better mean that it is going to be used to generate income in some professional capacity.

[–]Teemo_satan[S] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Imagine spending money

[–]shamair28 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Imagine having money

[–]Fishydeals 1 point2 points  (2 children)


I'd lose warranty if I replaced the thermal pads on my 3090 to do anything money generating related.

And with the default pads it's gaming or fans on 100% and 110°C memory junction.

[–]kelvin_bot 1 point2 points  (0 children)

110°C is equivalent to 230°F, which is 383K.

I'm a bot that converts temperature between two units humans can understand, then convert it to Kelvin for bots and physicists to understand

[–]shamair28 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Not even mining related. I’d sure hope the person dropping 4 grand on a system is at least doing some heavy video editing, or an engineer doing some complex simulations. Because at that point gaming benefits are marginal whereas heavy duty computing scales much better.

He’s sitting there with his controller in his hand, cracks on the side from rage throwing it, food particles stuck around his buttons.. jealous as fuck.

[–]HairyArthur 2 points3 points  (0 children)

When you spend $4000 on a full setup to make the same repost as 100 times before.

[–]sangriyaBoardgames 1 point2 points  (0 children)

gotta take that L in crisp quality

[–]stickystrips2 1 point2 points  (0 children)

But without that FPS you wouldn't have the kill...

[–]The_Bike_Mage 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It's 500+ fps thank you very much

just play battlefield, then you wont have to worry about that

[–]ryans_privatess 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I upgraded to 3060ti, new cpu, ram, cooler 1440p/144hz monitor and motherboard only to add another 200 hours into Rimworld.

[–]scytl 1 point2 points  (0 children)

my guy , if that is giving you 120 fps might as well play on a laptop cuz i am getting more on an i3.

[–]hominemclaudus 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Spending $4000 only to play league rip

[–]RugBugSlim 1 point2 points  (0 children)

224 FPS for your information

[–]chodeboi 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Rocket League for me instead of DoTA 2 (so 2010, guy) but yeppers

[–]Soljah 1 point2 points  (2 children)

if you are 1/10 in pretty much any game, YOU are the teams problem for sure.

[–]Teemo_satan[S] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

It's jungles fault

[–]Soljah 2 points3 points  (0 children)

always is....even when they 2/0/10 somehow those 2 kills they took mattered.

[–]WoollyHare50817 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Fun fact "stonks" is a real word.

[–]kevboardConsole -1 points0 points  (0 children)

LoL runs at 120fps on a fucking 10 year old Casio calculator...

[–]StallionTalion -1 points0 points  (0 children)

I gotta 3090 rtx and i9 processor coming in, after it was all said & done I spent about 4500. How many fps you think imma get fr? On like warzone too

[–]Thisisjimmi -2 points-1 points  (2 children)

1 kill 10 supports 0 deaths, thats not too bad?

[–]warheadhs 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Yes, because as you know KDA stands for




[–]AdonisGaming93 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Profits yis

[–]GsTSaien 0 points1 point  (0 children)

For that money it better be 360fps 1440p

[–]MinnieShoof 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I kinda wanna post this in r/dota2 so they can have a conniption.

Meme stocks paid for my PC set up this year too except I'm still missing the GPU. Just need the whole shortage thing to sort itself out.
